Wreaths Across America to Honor Veterans

Veterans buried at Willow Valley Cemetery (200 S. Church Street) will be honored once again this holiday season. Wreaths Across America chose to honor fallen Veterans at the cemetery for the fifth year.

Wreaths Across America is working with Ingram Funeral Home to identify the fallen heroes and lay wreaths on their graves. Additionally, they’ll say the name of every fallen Veteran aloud. The ceremony begins at 12 p.m. on December 17 at Willow Valley Cemetery.

Wreaths Across America is still looking for wreath sponsors and volunteers for the ceremony. You can find additional information on Wreaths Across America’s website.
