Wreaths Across America Day

December 15, 2018

Event Type: Public

What does it mean to sponsor a veteran’s wreath? It means you’ll honor an American hero at one of more than 1,400 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.

The wreaths are hand-crafted of all-American balsam and hand-tied with a red velvet bow in Columbia Falls, Maine. They 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.  Wreaths Across America Day offers us all the opportunity to join a grateful nation in saying “thank you” to our veterans.

Participating Maine Cemeteries where you can Remember and Honor our veterans through the laying of Remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country’s fallen heroes and the act of saying the name of each and every veteran aloud:

(1) On Saturday, December 15, 2018 at 12:00 PM, Wreaths Across America will be at South Buxton Cemetery in Buxton, Maine;
