The mission of Wreaths Across America is to Remember, Honor and Teach the next generation and that will last all year long, far beyond the single day in December when we coordinate wreath-laying ceremonies. The Wreaths Across America organization works throughout the year to show our veterans and their families that we will not forget the veterans who are serving, have served, or have given the ultimate sacrifice for our country. This year is the first year we will be holding Wreaths Across America ceremony at Jarrettown UMC. This is not a Christmas event, although we are putting evergreen wreaths with red bows to honor those who have served. The ceremony will be held on Saturday, December 19th at 12:00 Noon. More information about the ceremony will be announced at a later date.
Pastor Bob has attended other ceremonies in the past and is going to be a part of the ceremony. For a number of years I have taken part in the wreath laying at the Medal of Honor Grove in Valley Forge. The reasons behind this wreath laying are: Remember our fallen U.S. Veterans. Honor those who serve. Teach your children the value of Freedom. That freedom is the major reason we are free to worship as we do.
So if you would like to be a sponsor the cost of the wreaths are as follows:
- 1 Wreath $15.00, 2 Wreaths $30.00, 5 Wreaths $75.00, 10 Wreaths $150.00.
- Patriot Pairs: Give/Get a Wreath – Pair a sponsored wreath for your home or delivered as a gift to a loved one or a friend. In Honor or Memory of: To sponsor a wreath in honor of living veterans or memory of a veteran who has passed. This sentiment speaks volumes to those who have served or are serving to protect the freedoms we enjoy as American citizens.
- More to come on this event will be announced in the near future. If you are interested in participating and/or sponsoring a wreath(s) please contact Sherrie Irwin at email@example.com or 215-479-2245 or Jean Graber.
