Other patriotic functions will follow, so please join us at this incredible, inspiring celebration of our national pride.  Trucks will remain at The Shoppes parking lot overnight.  The following morning, Monday, December 5th, 2011 the procession will begin staging its departure at 6:15am to make its leave by7am.

Wreaths Across America™, a non-profit 501-c3 organization, was formed as an extension of the Arlington Wreath Project.  The Arlington Wreath program was started by Morrill Worcester in 1992 with the donation and laying of 5,000 Christmas wreaths at the Arlington National Cemetery. Since then, the program has exploded to international attention, and now wreaths are laid at over 300 locations worldwide with wreath laying ceremonies held in every state, Puerto Rico and at 24 overseas cemeteries.  Last year, over 100,000 wreaths were placed on veterans graves, and over 60,000 volunteers participated in the exalted procession that spans this great nation.
