Local Communities Gather To Honor Veterans with Wreaths
Each December on National Wreaths Across America Day, the gravesides of our nation’s veterans are decorated with a Christmas wreath.
Wreaths Across America’s mission touches the lives of thousands of school, scout, civic and religious groups across the country through fundraising for wreath sponsorships. These groups help ensure that a wreath is placed on each hero’s grave.
The mission to Remember, Honor and Teach was carried out this last Saturday, December 17th. Wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery, coordinated with more than 3,400 additional locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea and abroad. In our region, over 2,600 wreaths were placed in various cemeteries.
Wreaths Across America is running now through Jan 14, 2023. You can sponsor two wreaths with a $15 donation. Any additional wreaths after will be a $15 donation each.
