About this event:
Please join us at Santa Ana Cemetery on Saturday morning at 9 a.m. on December 17th. The Santa Ana Elks Lodge, in coordination with Wreaths Across America, will be holding a special wreath laying ceremony to honor our veterans. Following the ceremony volunteers can place wreaths on the graves of Veterans while the supplies of wreaths last.
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 MUST BE PURCHASED BY NOVEMBER 28TH. Wreaths cost $15 each and may be bought through Wreaths Across America by clicking on the link below.
Since this is a relatively new event for Santa Ana Cemetery, there will not be enough wreaths sponsored to cover every Veteran gravesite. Your help in sponsoring a wreath is greatly appreciated!! Please keep in mind that wreath placements cannot be assigned to specific gravesites, but are placed randomly on veteran graves. Sponsoring a wreath does not guarantee you will be able to place a wreath after the ceremony is over on Saturday morning.
We hope you will attend! The event will take place rain or shine.
