Wreaths Across America - Arlington Cemetery - VA


Saturday, December 16, 6am–4:30pm
1 session
Program #17BT09

Join R&P as we venture to Arlington Cemetery to volunteer assisting in the placing of wreaths on the graves at his annual event. Wreaths Across America began in 2006 as an offshoot of the Arlington National Cemetery wreath project, which was started in 1992 with the annual placement of wreaths donated by Worcester Wreath Company of Harrington, Maine. Additional wreath sponsorships are welcome and needed-for more information and to sponsor a wreath, visit WreathsAcrossAmerica.org (click on the “sponsor” link and chose to buy one or more). There will be a short briefing at the cemetery, and after the completion of the project, our bus will take us over to Union Station for lunch (on your own) and a bit of shopping time. Dress for the weather and for walking. Includes motorcoach transportation and driver’s gratuity.

*wreath sponsorship is an additional fee and must be done at their website listed above
