All are invited to help the Boy Scouts from Troops 35 and 53 remove the 2,184 wreaths placed at the Connecticut Veterans Cemetery, 22 Hecker Ave. Removal will begin at 8 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 28.
Work gloves are recommended but not required.
The Scouts are being assisted again this year by local landscaper Dave Gartrell, who once more has volunteered his services.
Location Leader Phil Kraft said, “I was impressed by the turnout to place the wreaths, and am looking forward to a similar turnout this Saturday to remove them.”
Similar activities have been occurring all week from Arlington to the West Coast.
