wreaths

Wreath fluffing and preparation for the annual wreath laying will take place Saturday at the Killeen Special Events Center. The wreath-laying ceremony will be Nov. 26.

Friends of the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery is a nonprofit organization that works with hundreds of volunteers to prepare and lay wreaths on each veteran’s grave at the Killeen military cemetery for the holidays. Organizers say there is a need and plenty of room for anyone interested in preparing for this annual event.

Volunteers will begin to prepare by going through the some 8,000 wreaths that were used in prior years, sprucing them up and adding a piece of ribbon or glue where needed.
