Local La Cuesta Chapter NSDAR recently announced it is supporting Wreaths across America as a DAR Service for Veterans project. The Chapter officially enrolled in Wreaths across America, sponsoring Arroyo Grande Cemetery, La Cuesta Chapter NSDAR (CA0591P).
The CSDAR’s goal was to place a holiday wreath on every Veteran’s grave throughout the country on Dec. 19 to remember the fallen and honor those who continue to serve and teach children the value of freedom.
Karen DeLorenzo, DAR Service for Veterans committee, and Regent Leslie Lechner, who leads chapter
members, came together to lay the wreaths while speaking the veterans’ names and honor their service. Saturday morning, there was a great group of volunteers, all following COVID safety guidelines. The project will be ongoing.
