Immediately following the ceremony we are invited to help place wreaths, and assist other groups as well as the friends and families of those buried at the Minnesota State Veterans Cemetery in Little Falls. Anticipated release time is as soon as all the wreaths are placed. If you cant make it in time for the Flag-line you are still invited to come out and help with the wreaths. If you haven’t seen the 4000 plus markers all with a wreath it is an awesome site.
