The Basehor VFW will play host to a spaghetti dinner Saturday to help fifth-grade students at Basehor-Linwood Intermediate School raise money for the Wreaths Across America program. Dinner is 5 to 8 p.m., and a donation of $7 per person will be accepted at the door. All proceeds and donations from the dinner will be given to the fifth-grade class to buy wreaths for veterans’ graves.

Wreaths Across America is an international program that ensures that wreaths are laid on veterans’ graves in December of each year. The fifth-graders lay wreaths at Leavenworth National Cemetery, where there are 200,000 veterans’ graves. For more information about the program, visit wreathsacrossamerica.org.
