All told, 11 truckloads of greenery from Worcester Wreath Co. made their way to the cemetery outside Washington, D.C. Maine first lady Ann LePage planned to be on hand Saturday as the wreaths were laid on headstones.

The nonprofit Wreaths Across America expects to ship 470,000 to 500,000 wreaths to adorn veterans' graves this holiday season. Last-minute donations bumped the number of Arlington wreaths from 100,000 to 120,000.
