Wreath Across America
REMEMBER: our fallen U.S. veterans.
HONOR: those who serve.
TEACH: your children the value of freedom.
This is more than a fundraiser, this is an opportunity to teach our scouts and our community about the veterans that have served to protect our nation. Some paid the ultimate sacrifice in battle to be laid to rest locally, while others came home to live the rest of their lives: some permanently changes by their service.
On December 15th, the entire county in unison begins laying wreaths on the grave stone for those veterans that have passed. We celebrate and honor those people. With each wreath place on the grave, we read the name and we salute, giving thanks for their sacrifice.
The scouts that sell wreaths earn $5 out of the $15 wreath cost, supporting them in the scouting program. But out of the program they are hopefully learning about citizenship, honor, and respect. These are qualities that stick with a person forever.
Each wreath is $15. Checks should be made to "Troop 25".
All payments need to be in by the Troop meeting following Thanksgiving.
