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 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.
