REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children the value of Freedom.
Welcome to the Conklin Forks's Wreaths Across America Page.
On Saturday, December 19, 2020, Wreaths Across America will be at Savage FS and Conklin Forks to Remember and Honor our veterans through the laying of Remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes and the act of saying the name of each and every veteran aloud.
First ceremony will be held at Riverhurst Memorial in Endwell, NY at 10 am, following the placing of wreaths. The Second ceremony will be at Savage FS located at 338 COnklin Ave Binhamton NY at 1 pm, which will be the initial ceremony for 10 of the other participating locations the Savage Family is coordinating this 2019. After the ceremony, local Group Leaders and volunteers will be directed and navigated to specific cemeteries to lay wreaths.
