Wreaths Across America

This year we are pleased to be participating in the Wreaths Across America campaign.

For those of you not familiar with WAA, it is an organization that was started with the intention of putting a wreath on every headstone at Arlington National Cemetery.  Over the years, it has grown to include cemeteries all across the country and is solely run on donations.

On Monday, Nov 30, Tom Tinnin will be leaving here destined for Maine where he will pick up a load of wreaths for Southeast Missouri.  We will be providing the wreaths that will be laid on the headstones at the Veterans Cemetery in Bloomfield as well as the veterans headstones in five smaller cemeteries around Scott City and Benton.

On Thursday Dec 10th, the load will leave our facility with an escort provided by the American Legion Riders that will make the loop from Scott City to Bloomfield and then Benton.

The official wreath laying ceremony in Bloomfield will be on Saturday the 12th where volunteers from the area will place the wreaths on every headstone.
