Volunteers place wreaths on graves

On Dec. 14, wreaths were laid by volunteers and family members of passed veterans at the Beulah Cemetery in Ramey and at Crossroads Cemetery near Beccaria.

The wreaths were laid as part of the national program Wreaths Across America.

Wreaths are sponsored by donations and are laid on the graves of veteran heroes. This is the second year that both cemeteries have had enough sponsored wreaths to cover all veterans laid to rest there, and the group would like to thank those that did so in honor of a veteran.

These are the same wreaths that are used in Arlington National Cemetery.

Both cemeteries are honored to be a part of this special program in honoring veterans for what they did and continue to do for us.

Wreaths Across America’s mission is “Remember the fallen, honor those that serve and teach the future that freedom is not free”.

For more information or to make a donation, contact Robin Bowser, wreaths coordinator for Beulah Cemetery, at 378-6166 or Gloria Arkwright, coordinator at Crossroads Cemetery, at 672-5829.
