LAKEPORT – Local veterans groups and residents gathered for a holiday wreath-laying ceremony on Saturday morning at Hartley Cemetery outside of Lakeport.


The ceremony, part of the Wreaths Across America commemoration, took place at 9 a.m. Dec. 13 at Hartley Cemetery's Veterans Circle.


The Wreaths were donated to Lake County by Worcester Wreath Co., the same company that donates thousands of wreaths to Arlington National Cemetery every year.


The laying of the wreaths at Veterans Circle coincided coincide with the noon laying of the wreaths at Arlington National Cemetery in Washington D.C.
