Iowa cemetery joins Wreaths Across America

Posted: Updated:
BENTON COUNTY (KWWL) - The Mt. Auburn Cemetery is now part of the Wreaths Across America (WAA) program.

It celebrated its first WAA day Saturday with a ceremony of laying wreaths on veterans' graves by family members and volunteers. Mt. Auburn has 90 veterans that received wreaths, and each wreath was donated.

Wreaths Across America started in 1992, and has grown both nationally and internationally. The program's objective is to have a wreath on every veteran's grave during the Christmas holiday.

Mt. Auburn Cemetery is the sixth in the state of Iowa to be accepted.
