The Urbana Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution welcomed 567 wreaths on Tuesday at Oak Dale Cemetery. The wreaths will be placed on approximately one-third of the veterans’ graves at the cemetery on Saturday beginning with a ceremony at noon.

Wreaths Across America is a national program to place wreaths on veterans’ graves throughout the nation. This year more than 1,700 U.S. cemeteries will participate, including Arlington Cemetery. Three cemeteries in Europe were included this year, including one at Normandy.

The public is invited to participate on Saturday. Join the Urbana DAR, the VFW and DAV and many others at noon near Soldiers Mound at Oak Dale Cemetery.
