Garner's annual Wreath Laying and Gold Star Tree Ceremony at the Garner Veterans Memorial in Lake Benson Park (921 Buffaloe Road) is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 15 at 10 a.m. 
The Town of Garner's Honor Guard will present the colors and Jeff Hammerstein will play the entry music.
Loved ones will have the opportunity to play Gold Stars on the tree in honor of family members who died while in the service. During the Christmas season, take a moment to remember our community's fallen heroes.
Our community had eight men to die in Vietnam, nine to die in World War II, one to die in Korea and two to die in the Global War on Terror. Pause and remember.
Military personnel from the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard will participate. The honor guard from Seymour Johnson Air Base will provide a bugler. Garner police and fire personnel will present colors. 
The media and public are invited to this event honoring veterans--especially those who died while serving.
