Wreaths Across America Kicks Off Saturday

 

Saturday, December 16th, the Southern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery, located here in Boulder City, will be participating in “Wreaths Across America”, an annual event where wreaths are placed on the graves of Veterans to remember and honor them for their service. You can share in the event and show your support in several ways:

Head over to the kickoff event on Saturday, November 11 at Boulder City Company Store, located at 525 Avenue B. Denise Ashurst, local coordinator, will be there from 9:00AM to 11:00AM to assist in placing wreath orders and signing up volunteers for the wreath laying next month.

Press View and then you’ll see a button where you can register to Volunteer. The ceremony will begin at 9:00AM and volunteers are welcome to attend. You can sign up Saturday between 9:00AM and 11:00AM at Boulder City Company Store.

What’s more, if you decide to sponsor a wreath you can do so in the name of a loved veteran who is currently serving, or in the name of a veteran who has passed.
