Wreaths Across America will be at the cemetery to remember and honor our veterans through the laying of Remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes. 

There are 350 veterans buried in the cemetery and our goal is to place a wreath at each and every grave. Volunteers are needed and we welcome anyone that is able to attend to help accomplish this task. In addition, we still need to meet our goal. The cost is $15 per wreath and donations can be made on the Wreaths across America page
