About this event:

Please join us at El Toro Memorial Park on Saturday morning at 9 a.m. on December 17th. American Heritage Girls Troop 356, in coordination with Wreaths Across America, will be holding a special wreath laying ceremony to honor our veterans.  Following the ceremony, volunteers will place wreaths on the graves of Veterans.

Girls and family members place wreaths on Veterans grave

The wreaths are much more than just decoration.  As each wreath is placed, volunteers are encouraged to take the time to speak that Veteran's name, thank him or her for their service, and to pray for the Veteran's family.  It is an expression of appreciation that fits perfectly with Wreaths Across America's Mission to Remember U.S. Veterans, to honor those who serve, and to teach our children about the value of freedom.  

WREATHS MAY BE SPONSORED UNTIL NOVEMBER 28TH.  Wreaths cost $15.00 each and may be ordered through Wreaths Across America at the folloiwng link:

Please note that wreath placements cannot be assigned to specific gravesites and are placed randomly on veteran graves.  Most years there are not enough wreaths sponsored to cover every Veteran gravesite.  Sponsoring a wreath does not guarantee that you will be able to place a wreath after the ceremony on Saturday. 

We hope you can attend!  The event will take place rain or shine.
