More than 920 military veterans laid to rest at Chestnut Grove Cemetery in Herndon will be honored during a special ceremony later this month.
The Town of Herndon is working with the Herndon Woman’s Club and Wreaths Across America for the remembrance ceremony, which is open to the public and begins at noon on Saturday, Dec. 17.
First established in 1872, the 25-acre cemetery is the final resting place for veterans dating back to the War of 1812. The historic cemetery was deeded to the town in 1997 by the Chestnut Grove Cemetery Association, which operated the cemetery from the early 1950s.
“This event has been going on in the Herndon community for many years, and everyone thinks it continues to be a wonderful way for the community to show respect for those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country,” town spokesperson Reid Okoniewski said.
The woman’s club is a nonprofit organization that aims to support local, state, national and international causes since it was established in 1939.
Individuals unable to attend the event can sponsor a wreath for $15. Checks can be made payable to the Herndon Woman’s Club and sent to P.O. Box 231, Herndon, VA, 20172.
