Wreathes Accross America

On last Saturday, my gymnastics team went to Wreathes Accross America at the Dixon Cemetary. We got there about 8:30 and there was a long line of cars headed to the cemetary. We met up with our teammates and tried to hear the ceremony that was put on. Right after the ceremony, we walked over to an area that had a bunch of boxes and started unpacking the wreathes that were suppose to go onto each grave. After all family members laid wreathes, then all the public could lay wreathes on the rest of the graves. It was really pretty after all the wreathes were laid. I think we heard that 11,000 wreathes were laid at the cemetary that day. It was a nice thing to do for all the veterens that served for our country. We never did it before but I hope we do it again next year.
