Tomorrow’s annual ‘Wreaths Across America’ to be virtual

Like a lot of other traditions and events this year, there will be no public “Wreaths Across America Ceremony” on Saturday, Dec. 19.

A video of the ceremony will be made available via Facebook HERE the week of December 20th. Anyone wishing to volunteer to help place wreaths can arrive at Highlands Cemetery between 12:30-2 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 19.

Please follow parking and wreath placement directions by our docents.

Some items to be aware of before you arrive:

  • Please do not arrive at the cemetery before 12:30 p.m. Please consider arriving closer to 1 p.m. to allow for staggering of volunteer vehicles parked at the cemetery.
  • Please wear a mask at all times.
  • Please wear some type of gloves (work gloves are best) to handle wreaths.

Any changes due to weather will be announced on their Facebook page HERE.
