Crown Point The Carillon Garden Club will be participating in “Wreaths Across America” on Saturday, Dec. 14, at noon. A seasonal wreath will be placed at the Blue Star Memorial Garden Sign at the Crown Point Bridge information site to remember the nation’s veterans.
“Garden clubs in the Federated Garden Clubs of New York State and the National Garden Club will all be participating across the country along with other organizations at nearly 900 sites,” said Betty Rettig, Carillon Garden Club president. “A moment of silence will be observed as part of the ceremony. Everyone is welcome and invited to participate.”
The “Wreaths Across America” program was started in 2007 after Morrill Worcester of Maine had already been donating many wreaths to the Arlington National Cemetery for 15 years. Since then many more organizations have joined the movement to remember the nation’s veterans. The WAA mission is to remember, honor and teach about the service and sacrifice of veterans, active military and their families. For more information visit: www.WreathsAcrossAmerica.org.
