Students honor fallen soldiers with cemetery wreaths: Romona’s Kids

Beautiful, live evergreen wreaths will be placed at veterans headstones simultaneously at more than 1,200 cemeteries all over the United States.

The idea is to spread patriotism and remember the ultimate sacrifice they made for our country. The CVCC students will place wreaths at Western Reserve National Cemetery in Medina County.

The ceremony is set for Dec. 15. Each wreath sponsorship costs just $15. To donate or sign up to volunteer, click here.
