Wreaths Across America

Once again, the Maine Public Safety Pipe & Drum Corps is working with Wreaths Across America to place a wreath on veterans graves in December. We support the Maine Veterans Cemetery in Augusta and will be placing wreaths there on Saturday, December 17. We also support Arlington National Cemetery in VA. We also perform during the wreath convoy as it makes its way from Maine to Arlington.
