Remember Our Fallen, One Wreath at a Time

Posted: October 8, 2015

The Glen Meadow Middle School National Junior Honor Society is raising funds for “Wreaths Across America” and is currently collecting donations for wreath purchases. Wreaths may be purchased through their fundraising page.

Wreaths Across America began in 2006 as an offshoot of the Arlington National Cemetery wreath project to remember the fallen, honor those who serve, and teach our children the value of freedom.

Wreaths Across America groups will help adorn veteran memorials and grave sites in all 50 states with red-ribboned remembrance wreaths this holiday season.

The wreath laying ceremony will be held on Saturday, December 12, 2015 at 10:00 a.m. at Glenwood Cemetery (926 Route 517 in Vernon). You need not sponsor a wreath to attend—all are welcome to participate in this meaningful ceremony.
