For the 6th year in a row, members of Los Alamos Youth Leadership (LAYL) participated in Wreaths Across America. The youth placed wreaths on graves Saturday at the Santa Fe National Cemetery as part of the national event.
After the ceremony, the group went shopping for a local family that they have adopted through the Women of Beta Sigma Phi, Los Alamos Alpha Zeta Chapter.
The LAYL group raised money earlier in the year through car washes and concessions sales to pay for the family gifts.
