Annual Wreaths Across America

Saturday, December 15

This national-wide effort is to place fresh Maine Balsam wreaths on each Veteran's grave each holiday season.

Approximately 1,750 grave sites are at the Alabama National Cemetery in Montevallo, and the goal of the Wreaths Across America is to have a wreath placed at each site for the Holiday season.

The ceremony will take place at 11 a.m. with co-hosts Peggy Bourland and Charon Rivers. Scout Troops will be assisting, and the public will be encouraged to assist in placements of wreaths once the family members of those buried have preceded with their wreaths.

Currently, there is a need for more wreaths to be purchased to meet the demand of the number of graves. Cost is $15 with a deadline of November 20. For more information, visit www.bluestarsalute.org.
