From Downeast To Bangor, Here’s When The Wreaths Across America Escort To Arlington Convoy Will Be Driving Through Your Town
Thousands of wreaths produced in Washington County will begin to make the annual trek to Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia this Sunday morning, December 10th. Show your appreciation for those that have fought and given their lives in the name of freedom by waving, blowing your vehicle's horn, or, attending one of the ceremonies.
It all begins with breakfast bright and early around 6AM at Narraguagus High School in Harrington. The Cherryfield Band will play before the "blessing of the fleet", and then the convoy will slowly enter Route 1 for it's drive to Ellsworth.
The convoy will drive through Milbridge, Steuben, Gouldsboro, Sullivan, and then across the Sullivan/Hancock bridge, where it will stop briefly in Hancock for a wreath delivery at the Hancock Church.
The procession of 18 wheel tractor trailers, local fire and police vehicles, motorcycles, and cars carrying dignitaries will continue on Route 1 until it makes it to the Maine Coast Mall in Ellsworth, where a ceremony will take place sometime around 9 a.m. in front of TJ Maxx. Everyone is welcome!
Spectators will then line High Street In Elllsworth as the Escort To Arlington convoy motors to Outer State Street and onto Route 1A, where it will make it's way through Dedham, Holden, Brewer, and then to Quirk Chevrolet Dealership on Hogan Road in Bangor for another ceremony that should begin around 11:30 a.m.
