Please mark your calendar for Saturday, December 16th for National Remembrance Day. This is the 26th year of this remarkable program that started with 5,000 wreaths and has grown to 1.2 million wreaths in 2016. Veterans in all fifty states and twenty-four foreign countries where American veterans are at rest have been honored by this outstanding program.
With the support of local businesses, organizations, and individuals we hope to further expand our efforts this year to honor even more of our veterans. Again this year our local Wreaths Across America committee will be raising funds to place a wreath on as many veterans stones as possible in Greater Gardiner. In addition to raising funds, we are encouraging more volunteers to join us on that day to help us pay tribute to those men and women who have given so much to our great country.
