The Central Dauphin choir performed. There was also a ceremonial flag folding.
“We want people, especially at this very special time of year, to not forget the men and women who protect us. It’s about one percent of our country is actually, I always call them the sheepdogs, they’re out there protecting the flock,” said Rep. Stephen Barrar, Majority Chairman for the House Veterans Affairs and Emergency Preparedness Committee.
The wreaths will stay up around the state Capitol for the holidays.
