SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. — A cold Saturday, Dec. 17, morning did not deter community members from celebrating the fourth annual Wreaths Across America at Happy Homestead Cemetery in South Lake Tahoe. 

Sponsored by the Lake Tahoe Chapter National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, Wreaths Across America honored current military personnel, fallen U.S. veterans and first responders with wreaths placed at the Memorial Wall.  

South Lake Tahoe joined over 2,300 National Cemeteries, State Veterans’ Cemeteries, veterans’ monuments, local cemeteries and on ships at sea nationwide with participation in this ceremony. The mission of Wreaths Across America is to Remember – Honor – Teach by remembering the sacrifices of our veterans.
