Arlington Wreath Project - December 10, 2011

Wreaths Across America - Arlington National Cemetary

Volunteers are welcome to participate in the 19th annual Arlington Wreath Project beginning at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 10 . The welcome ceremony will take place at the intersection of Lincoln and L'Enfant drives in Arlington National Cemetary. Sections 28, 38, 43 and 60 will be decorated with more than 20,000 donated and sponsored holiday wreaths from the Worcester Wreath Company of Harrington, Maine to honor our Veterans during the holidays.

With images of Arlington, family and friends - this is one visual way of saying thank you - to those who serve, to those we've lost, and to those who made the ultimate sacrifice so that we can enjoy the freedoms of this Country.

In 2010, I tagged along with my stepmom's company Ernst & Young, who sponsors a team to volunteer and help out with lying wreaths on graves.  We all received yellow company hats which were a huge success, especially because it was easy to spot our team members in the huge crowds.

This year the Arlington Wreath Project plans to provide enough wreaths to cover EVERY grave in Arlington Cemetary.  Come out this year and help!!
