Place Wreaths to Honor Servicemen and Women
Join us for our fourth annual Wreaths Across America celebration. The event remembers our fallen heroes, honors those who have served and their families, and teaches our children about the value of freedom.
Wreaths Across America places wreaths on graves as a tribute to all servicemen and women. It’s a simple but powerful way to honor them for their selfless sacrifice and that of their families, who are often without their loved ones during the holidays.
On this day, more than 400 families and volunteers will lay wreaths at veteran graves. Come out to show your support for this great cause. Volunteers are needed to help place wreaths on graves after the ceremony. You can also show your support by sponsoring a wreath.
Schedule of Events
The ceremony will take place at the POW Flag Monument in our Garden of Valor Veteran’s Extension with a greeting and remarks by Dee Sanford. There will be a special presentation to the five Medal of Honor recipients interred at Greenwood, along with a Presentation of the Colors by ROTC Lincoln High School and ROTC Morse Drum Corps.
9:30 – 11 am
Volunteers will lay wreaths on veteran gravesites.
