Ceremony and Volunteer Information

We are happy that you are willing to help with our Wreath Across America event. Please do not forget to register to volunteer! That way you will get all updates about the cemetery itself.

Here are some things to remember about the ceremony:

  • Everyone of all ages and backgrounds is welcome.
  • Please help ensure that all participants get the opportunity to place a wreath.
  • Please follow the location coordinators instructions on where to place wreaths, as well as "how" they should be placed.

  • We especially appreciate volunteers willing to help clean-up. Please check in with the location coordinator if you are interested in helping with the clean-up.

This year's rules due to COVID restrictions:
  1. All volunteers must register online to participate. We are restricted to only 100 participants this year per the Governor's directive. Volunteers will be stopped at the main gate. If your name is not on the list you will not be allowed to participate in the wreath laying event.
  2. Masks and social distancing will be required at ALL times.
  3. There will not be a public ceremony this year honoring the branches of the military. However, please note that a remembrance wreath will be placed in their honor at the base of the flag pole on the top of the hill by the WAA site coordinator.

The most important thing to remember is to have a wonderful experience participating in the ceremony and thank you so much for helping to achieve our mission to Remember, Honor and Teach.
