Community members gathered at seven different cemeteries in Westchester for the Wreaths Across America ceremony.

Wreaths Across America is a nonprofit organization founded to continue and expand the annual wreath laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery begun in 1992.

Volunteers at the event are asked to not only lay a wreath on the grave but to read the name from the headstone and salute, even if the volunteer has not served in the military. Hopkins said the program has been possible thanks to the generosity of donors and sponsors.

This could be a bad flu season
Roberts said it is too early to tell if the flu vaccine is working but said that even a little protection helps in the long run. Martinello says the flu shot may not be as effective as in years past, but getting it minimizes the severity of the symptoms.
