Volunteers Place Wreaths at Arlington

Readers may be interested to know that these wreaths -- some 5,000 -- laid at Arlington National Cemetary are donated by the Worcester Wreath Co. of Harrington, Maine . The owner, Merrill Worcester, not only provides the wreaths, but covers the trucking expense as well. He's done this since 1992. Also, most years, groups of Maine school kids combine an educational trip to DC with this event to help out. Making this even more remarkable is the fact that Harrington is in one the poorest parts of the state. Up to 200 volunteers have participated.
