More than 24,000 volunteers turned out, even in the icy, cold, frosty and rainy weather to carefully lay 245,000 remembrance wreaths at grave sites at Arlington National Cemetery. The Wreaths Across America ceremony took place for the 25th year Saturday December 17, 2016. The theme for this year’s event was #SayTheirNames. The Rotarians from the Rotary Club of Leesburg who participated were club president Dan Hampton, Chuck Reavis, Hugh Forsythe, Tom Horne, Howard Moody and Bill Blessing. Guests from the club included Ron Hampton, Janet Hampton, Corie Hampton and Chris McAlister (Air Force Reserves). Photo's courtesy of Ron Hampton.
