Help honor our fallen

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. Every year since then, the goal of honoring each gravesite with a wreath has been accomplished. With community support, the 2013 Wreath Project will be successful as well!

About 12,500 wreaths are needed for the 2013 wreath-laying event, each costing $8, but donations in any amount are much appreciated. Checks may be sent to RememberAVet.net, P.O. Box 773, Winters, CA 95694.

All ages are invited and encouraged to attend and participate in the wreath-laying ceremony at 9 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 14, at the cemetery in Dixon, 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 project. Please help spread the word about this project…that’s how it grows. For questions, call Curtis at 707-761-3343 or Susie at 707-249-5852. To receive regular updates about this annual wreath project, join the email group by sending a message to wreathproject@yahoo.com and visit the website at www.wreathproject.org.
