Touring the country: Wreaths Across America Mobile Education Exhibit visits Grass Valley

Wreaths Across America’s Mobile Education Exhibit made a stop at Grass Valley’s downtown Safeway parking lot Saturday, offering information as well as welcoming Vietnam veterans and presenting them with 50-year Vietnam commemorative pins. Fifteen Vietnam veterans were pinned and given the proclamation, with over 100 people coming through the exhibit. Many people gave donations to sponsor wreaths to cover the graves of veterans for a ceremony planned Dec. 18 at St. Patrick's Cemetery.
