National Wreaths Across America Day is a movement
to cover all Veteran grave markers with a Christmas wreath.
Congress designated the annual observance
on a Saturday in December.
This year, In collaboration with Wreaths Across America we will decorate the graves
of the approximately 50 veterans who lie in rest in our historic 1696 Burial Ground.
Remember. Honor. Teach. This is the mission of Wreaths Across America.
By coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery
and other cemeteries around the country,
Wreaths Across America strives to remember our fallen heroes.
The day honors those who serve still today.
And it teaches our children about the sacrifices made by veterans and their families
to preserve our freedoms.
Our Congregants fought in
this nation’s three founding wars
United States War of Independence
The War of 1812
The Civil War
