Wreaths Across America
Join us on National Wreaths Across America Day December 14, 2019
Each December on National Wreaths Across America Day, our mission to Remember, Honor and Teach is carried out by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as at more than 1,600 additional locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea and abroad.
Wreaths Across America are looking for local volunteers to help with the laying of wreaths on veterans’ graves in the Pequea Valley School District area on Dec.14th, 2019. For more information please contact Paula Deam at (717) 587-1315 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
What does it mean to sponsor a wreath? It means you’ll honor an American hero at one of more than 1,200 locations nationwide this year on Wreaths Across America Day. It’s a day that’s been set aside to lay wreaths at the places where we remember, honor and teach about our veterans: cemeteries, monuments, parks… Anywhere we can pay tribute to their sacrifices.
We can’t do that without your support, though. Your sponsorship will ensure that a wreath is hand-crafted of all-American balsam and hand-tied with a red velvet bow here in Columbia Falls, Maine. It will then be sent to one of our participating locations, where a volunteer will place it on the marker of a fallen hero. That volunteer will then “say their name” to ensure that the legacy of duty, service and sacrifice of that veteran is never forgotten.
Sponsorship cost begins at $15 beginning Nov. 1st..
