Local efforts under way to support Wreaths Across America

1 min read

Volunteers are ensuring that all veterans laid to rest at Greenwood Cemetery in Fowlerville are honored on National Wreaths Across America Day, Saturday, Dec. 14, 2019. This year, the ceremony will be held at noon across the country at nearly 2,000 participating locations, including Greenwood Cemetery in Fowlerville.

The Fowlerville 4th of July Committee and the Village of Fowlerville are sponsoring the event for its first time in Fowlerville. The ceremony will include placing seven wreaths at the cemetery to honor the seven branches of our military. The goal for future years will be to create fundraising opportunities through sponsorship to honor every veteran buried at the cemetery.

There will be a short program led by Livingston County Register of Deeds Brandon Denby. The public is welcome to attend.

“Every wreath sponsorship is a meaningful gift from a grateful American who knows what it means to serve and sacrifice for the freedoms we all enjoy,” said Karen Worcester, executive director of Wreaths Across America. “We are so grateful to the Fowlerville 4th of July Fireworks Committee and the Village of Fowlerville for participating in our mission to Remember, Honor and Teach.”

National Wreaths Across America Day is a free, non-political event, open to all people. For more information, to donate locally, visit www.WreathsAcrossAmerica.org.
