Donate, volunteer for Wreath Project

By
From page A6 | November 15, 2012 |

In 2006, a new tradition of laying wreaths at the Sacramento Valley National Cemetery during the holiday time in honor of our fallen was started. About 300 wreaths were purchased and each gravesite was covered that first year.

As the cemetery continues to grow, it is only through the generosity and support of individuals, groups and businesses in surrounding communities that the goal of providing one wreath for each gravesite has been accomplished for the past six years. With your help, the 2012 Wreath Project will be just as successful!

About 11,500 wreaths will be needed for the 2012 wreath-laying event, each one costing $8, but donations in any amount are much appreciated. Checks may be sent to RememberAVet.net, P.O. Box 773, Winters, CA 95694. Any excess funds will be used to start the 2013 project.

Volunteers of all ages are invited and encouraged to attend and participate in the wreath-laying ceremony Saturday, Dec. 15, at 9 a.m. in Dixon, (5810 Midway Road). The event goes on, rain or shine. Wreaths also may be picked up the week prior to the public event for family and friends wanting a more private remembrance (check the website for dates/times to pick up wreaths).

You need not donate to attend, and wreaths are all purchased in advance and supplied to volunteers that day. It is an event you and your family will never forget!

Thank you in advance for your support of this terrific community service. Please help spread the word about this project … that’s how it grows. To receive regular updates about the annual wreath project, join the email group by sending a message to wreathproject@yahoo.com and visit the website at www.wreathproject.org. We’re also on Facebook; search Wreath Project (Sacramento Valley National Cemetery).
