Our assembly is a sponsor of Wreaths Across America, an organization that each December on National Wreaths Across America Day, coordinates wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as at more than 2,500 additional locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea and abroad including Wilmington's National Cemetery.
The goal for Wilmington's National Cemetery is to place a wreath on each of the more than 5,200 graves. Wreaths cost $17 each and are delivered directly to the cemetery in time for Wreaths Across America Day which falls on December 16 this year. On that day volunteers from many organizations participate in placing the wreaths on the graves. In past years our sisters, the Columbiettes, and other local Knights councils lent hands.
Wreaths can be purchased by printing out this form and mailing the payment. Also, wreaths can be purchased on line here. In either case, you can designate the wreaths purchased "In Memory Of" a deceased veteran, or "In Honor Of" a living veteran.
