Due to snow and ice, the wreath laying ceremony on Saturday, December 15 was cancelled. However, wreaths will be placed between 1-3 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 16. Please drive into the cemetery, place several wreaths, and then drive on, allowing additional volunteers to place wreaths. There will not be any permanent/long term parking available at the cemetery. Please exercise caution if placing wreaths as the ground will be snow/ice-covered.
We will hold a brief ceremony followed by volunteers laying wreaths on all gravestones of our Veterans at Highlands Cemetery.
We hope everyone in the Highlands community can join us!
Contact Phil Potts at 828-200-9753 for more information.
Please plan on joining us and help spread the word about this change in schedule.
