Holiday thoughts and prayers

Wreaths Across America Day, on which members of the community are invited to gather honor veterans during the holiday season by placing a wreath, is Saturday, December 14.

The event begins at 8:45 a.m. at the Sonoma Veterans Memorial Park, and will be held rain or shine. Begun in 1992 at Arlington National Cemetery with the donation of 5,000 wreaths, Wreaths Across America now takes place at 900 veterans cemeteries in all 50 states, plus 24 American military cemeteries on foreign soil.

The local ceremony is coordinated by Civil Air Patrol Squadron 157 from Sonoma County Airport, VFW Post 1943 and American Legion Post 489 of Sonoma.
