The Greater Harrington Historical Society is very excited to announce we have become the local sponsor and organizer for the Wreaths Across America program. This program is designed to Remember, Honor, and Teach. This organization partners with over 1600 local organizations and cemeteries to honor our veterans during the December holiday season. Wreaths are sponsored through individuals, groups, or organizations at a cost of $15.00 per wreath. You can sponsor one, 5, 10, or more or you can setup a monthly sponsorship. If you have a certain veteran you wish to remember at Hollywood Cemetery, you can do that as well
Then in December of each year, volunteers come out to the cemetery to place the wreaths and honor those men and women that served our country who are no longer with us.
We understand we have Veterans Day in the fall and Memorial Day in the spring, but our service members sacrifice their time and safety every single day of the year to preserve our freedoms.
In many homes, there is an empty seat for one who is serving or one who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. There is no better time to express our appreciation than during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. We hope you will join us at Hollywood Cemetery this year to show our veterans and their families that we will not forget. We will never forget.
2019 Wreath laying ceremony will be held on December 14, 2019 beginning at 12 pm. We will have a short ceremony followed by the laying of the wreaths at each graveside. We will places wreaths for as many as we get sponsored. The current need for our location is approximately one thousand wreaths!
We will need lots of volunteers as well to place that many wreaths that day. For more information on sponsoring a wreath, volunteering for the event or both!, please visit our Wreaths Across America web page at :
