Volunteers are working hard to ensure all veterans laid to rest at Fairview Cemetery in League City are honored on National Wreaths Across America Day. The ceremony, held simultaneously across the country at more than 2,200 participating locations, will be at 11 a.m. Dec. 18.
National Wreaths Across America Day is a free, non-political event open to all. This year’s theme, “Live Up to Their Legacy,” urges everyone to look to the people and families that have made sacrifices to keep this country free and live up to their legacy.
The goal is to place a live, balsam fir wreath at the headstone of every veteran buried in Fairview, to spread patriotism, and to ensure no one is forgotten.
Volunteers are raising funds to sponsor the 128 wreaths needed to honor every veteran at Fairview. Each wreath sponsorship is $15. To donate wreaths for Fairview Cemetery, visit wreathsacrossamerica.org.
We're so grateful to the community of League City and Galveston County for participating in our mission to "Remember, Honor and Teach."
