Our friends at the Denis V. Cooper Foundation are fundraising for Wreaths Across America, a national campaign to ensure that every headstone at Sarasota National Cemetery has a wreath for the holidays.
There are thousands of veterans at SNC who no longer have family or friends to remember them, and the Wreaths Across America ceremony day might be the only time his or her grave site is visited all year.
It’s really a sight to behold when the wreaths are laid upon the beautiful white tombstones…. truly awe-inspriring.
This year’s goal is 12,600 wreaths, and it will take a tremendous amount of community support to achieve that goal. Wreaths are $15 each, and by sponsoring a Wreaths Across America remembrance wreath you are demonstrating your thankfulness for our nation’s armed services and its veterans. The deadline to sponsor is 11/26, so don’t delay!
We hope that you will sponsor a wreath and also join us at the Wreath-Laying Ceremony on Saturday, December 16 at 9:30am.
