Welcome to the Friends of WAA-IGNC's Wreaths Across America Page.

On Saturday, January 20, 2024, at 0900 we will be removing and recycling the wreaths placed on our Heroes' graves. Volunteers wishing to help need to dress according to the weather. We will meet at the memorial at 0845 for a short briefing before getting started. Remember to bring a pair or 2 of gloves to help keep your hands warm and clean. To help move the wreaths from the grave sites to the road's edge, you may use snow shovels, brooms, broom handles for 2-man carry, plastic sleds, tarps, etc. (as long as your mode of transport of the wreaths does NOT leave imprints in the grass).

If you have and are able to bring a low bodied dump truck or a dump trailer, that will be greatly appreciated. If you are bringing a dump trailer, the trailer should be attached to a 4-wheel drive vehicle as it tends to get very muddy at the dump site.

****PARKING****

Parking for wreath clean-up will be at the parking lot across from Columbariums A & B. We would like all volunteers removing wreaths to park here so that we keep the roads clear for the trucks and trailers. Some of these drivers may not be as experienced as others. We just want to prevent any issues from arising. Dump trucks and trucks with dump trailers should line up behind Toyman's truck located at section 39. Drivers, please make sure you see Toyman and give him your information.
