Wreaths Across America ceremony to take place at Sunset Hills Memorial Park Saturday

Sunset Hills Memorial Park will hold a Wreaths Across America ceremony Saturday, one of hundreds across the nation.

A piper will begin playing at 9:50 a.m., immediately prior to the 10 a.m. ceremony in which wreathes will be laid on the graves of fallen soldiers. Approximately six dozen donors sponsored wreathes, and 22 provided good and services for the ceremony.

Active and retired military men, an NJROTC cadet and a Gold Star Mother will lay remembrance wreathes for each of the branches of the United States military.

The Wreathes Across America organization's stated mission is "Remember, Honor, Teach," in regards to the contributions of the military to the welfare of the nation.

The ceremony will take place in the southeast corner of Sunset Hills Memorial Park, located at 1215 145th Place S.E. in Bellevue.
