KILLEEN, TX — Do you need something to do this weekend? Help a veteran!

Volunteers are needed for Wreath Retrieval Saturday, Jan. 11, at 10 a.m. at Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery, 11463 SH 195. No registration is required to participate.

The Friends of Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery and volunteers prepared and placed more than 8,000 wreaths at the cemetery in November as part of the annual Wreath Project.

Event parking will be available at the cemetery. Participants are advised to anticipate traffic and arrive early.
