Members of Darien's Good Wife's River Chapter DAR joined Vietnam Veteran, Donald O'Connell in collecting for Wreaths Across America at Darien's Goodwives Shopping Center on Saturday.

The goal is to cover all 2,184 graves in the veterans section of that cemetery, and the public is always encouraged to attend the wreath laying.

Wreaths can be ordered directly from Wreaths Across America with the group ID code of CT0007 and the location code of CTSGVD noted on the check /order form so that the wreaths arrive at the Darien location The mailing address is WAA, P.O. Box 249 Columbia Falls, Maine 04623. Wreaths can also be ordered at wreathsacrossamerica.org. Please be sure to include both codes when ordering. This year's local site coordinator is John Carter.
