On December 10, 2011, local high school students and volunteers placed 1,000 wreaths on veterans' graves at the Agawam and Winchendon State Veterans' Cemeteries. This project is part of the national Wreaths Across America program, which is available locally through generous donations. Fundraising for the 2012 campaign begins in January. Contact the state cemetery to learn how you can participate.
