Volunteers are needed for wreath removal at 8 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 26 at Darien’s Spring Grove Veterans Cemetery on Hecker Avenue. Darien’s Wreaths Across America group, VFW Post #6933 and site coordinator Dave Polett, sincerely appreciate all the help received in placing the wreaths on Dec. 15.

It is now time to remove them. All are welcome to come and help retire the wreaths. Many hands make light the work so everyone is encouraged to come out early on Saturday, Jan. 26  to help place the wreaths in the trucks and trailer provided by David Gartrell, for their trip to the disposal area. In case of really inclement weather we will postpone the removal to the following Saturday, Feb. 2.

All interested volunteers should meet by the Karl Lang monument in the center of Spring Grove Veterans Cemetery, on Saturday, Jan. 26 at 8 a.m.
