5th Annual Wreaths Across America 2016

This year Historic Oakwood Cemetery is proud to sponsor our 5th Wreaths Across America. The purpose of this event is to remember and honor fallen U.S. veterans and those who serve. As Karen Worcester, Executive Director of Wreaths Across America said, “We are not here to ‘decorate graves.’ We’re here to remember not their deaths, but their lives.’ These wreaths mean more than an act of kindness and signify the remembrance and gratefulness of citizens across the nation.

Oakwood’s goal this year is to have 1,000 wreaths in the Field of Honor. Volunteers will lay the wreaths out on the graves in a ceremony on December 17, 2016 at 12:00 pm. Wreaths only cost $15. More information can be found through the link below.
