Leon County Holds Memorial Day Wreath Laying Ceremony to Honor Veterans

Leon County Government will honor the brave men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military by placing wreaths at memorials and monuments in the community during Memorial Day weekend.

In the County's ongoing commitment to recognizing and supporting local veterans, staff will lay a wreath during a formal ceremony hosted by the American Legion Sauls-Bridges Post 13 on Monday, May 29, at 11 a.m. at Oakland Cemetery, 838 North Bronough Street.

The County also placed wreaths at six additional locations:
