2012 will mark the 20th anniversary of Worcester Wreath Company donating Maine wreaths to adorn the headstones of our Nation’s veterans at Arlington National Cemetery.

We have been given permission from Arlington National Cemetery to cover every grave (over 300,000) for the 20th Anniversary. With the generous help of donors like you we hope to make this happen.

In addition to wreaths destined for Virginia, Worcester Wreath will again donate 7 ceremonial wreaths to over 570 state, national, and local cemeteries across the Country. In 2009 wreath-laying ceremonies were coordinated in 24 foreign cemeteries, this tradition continues into 2012.

In response to the many voices who wanted to share in the project, the non-profit Wreaths Across America organization was formed to expand the program by offering supporters the opportunity to sponsor a wreath.

Our goal is to one day see every veterans grave in the country covered to honor every veteran during the holidays. In 2008 we expanded once again to give even more organizations the chance to help bring our goal to fruition by providing the opportunity to fund raise for their organizations needs along with helping Wreaths Across America gather sponsorships for wreaths.

Sponsorships are $15 each. The Kentucky Veterans Cemetery West’s 2012 service will be held at 11 a.m. on Dec. 15, 2012. Simultaneous wreath laying will be held at over 700 locations all around the world. For more information visit www.wreathsacrossamerica.org, or call 877-385-9504.
