Wreaths Coming To Post Cemetery

The Mackinac Island American Legion Post 299 and the Michigan Wing of the Civil Air Patrol will be participating in Wreaths Across America to honor and remember the United States’ fallen heroes. The event will take place Saturday, December 16, at noon at the Post Cemetery. The event is open to the public, and Post Commander Sid DeHaan welcomes the community to take part in this event to honor Mackinac Island’s veterans.

Local veteran Paul Wandrie will make a short speech, Mayor Margaret Doud will be in attendance, and the American Legion Color Guard will present the U.S. flag. Mr. DeHaan also is hoping he can arrange for a rifle unit to accompany the ceremony with a 21-gun salute.
