Welcome to the Greater Harrington Historical Society's Wreaths Across America Page.
On Dec 14, 2019 at 12 pm, Wreaths Across America will be at Hollywood Cemetery 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.

Directions to Cemetery
Navigation systems do an adequate job finding the cemetery. When you arrive, please follow the people and signs to the site of the ceremony itself. The cemetery is located on the Milford Harrington Hwy approximately 1 mile east of Harrington
Parking InstructionsWe ask that you park at the Independent Bible Fellowship Church, located just west of the cemetery on the Milford Harrington Hwy if you are able to walk. The cemetery has limited parking and we would like, as much as possible, to reserve that parking for our elderly and handicapped attendees. We will have signs placed along the roadway directing you to designated parking areas.
