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.

Maroney ordered nearly 500 wreaths.

Volunteers hope to cover more than 5,000 graves with a holiday wreath at the Wilmington National Cemetery on Saturday at noon. The event, also held Saturday, reportedly featured "music, representatives from all branches of the military and family members of veterans". "It's not about if we're cold, it's about remembering them".

"It's good to see so many people here today", Watkins said before the ceremony.

Melissa Jackson, the administrator for the veterans home, said the crowd this year was much larger than it has been in past years.

Fedora Doktor added that it's important for her to take part in the event regardless of the weather conditions.
