MACHIAS, Maine — The annual convoy of trucks from Down East bearing thousands of wreaths for Arlington National Cemetery begins its trek from eastern Maine next weekend.

The trucks leave Sunday from Harrington, home to the Worcester Wreath Co., which each year donates wreathes to honor veterans at the cemetery in Arlington, Va.

The Patriot Guard Riders, a national motorcycle group dedicated to patriotic events, are escorting the tractor trailers as they travel through and stop for ceremonies in eight states before arriving at Arlington National Cemetery next Saturday.

This is the 19th year that Morrill Worcester has provided wreaths since he started the event in 1992.
