Holiday Generosity from Maine
The Worcester Wreath Company in Harrington, Maine began donating wreaths to cemeteries back in 1992. What started out as a way to put its extra wreaths to good use has turned into a national story. Beginning December 9, two tractor-trailer trucks accompanied by several dozen motorcycles will make their journey from Harrington, Maine to Arlington, Virginia to deliver the wreaths to Arlington National Cemetery on December 15. This year the company will donate 14,371 wreaths, with 2,500 going to veterans' cemeteries in Maine.
