Wreaths Across America stopped by fire station #2 to drop off wreaths that would be used to adorn the gravesites of Veterans here in San Marcos. These wreaths came all the way down from the state of Maine and were housed at the fire station before making the final leg of their journey to be used during National Wreaths Across America Day on December 17, 2022. The San Marcos Cemetery was selected again for the 4th year as a participating location for this national program.
