From I-20 take exit 158 and travel north on Hwy 231 3.2 miles. St. Clair Memorial Gardens will be on your right directly across from Usrey Funeral Home and Wattsville Post Office. Navigation systems do an adequate job finding the cemetery. The ceremony will be at the Military Section located at the northeastern portion of the cemetery.
Parking InstructionsThere is plenty of parking at this cemetery, so feel free to park in any available spot. As this is a circular drive, please park in such a way that others are not blocked in. Overflow parking is at Usrey Funeral Home directly across Hwy 231.
Ceremony and Volunteer Information
We are happy that you are willing to help with our Wreath Across America ceremony at St. Clair Memorial Gardens. 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 immediately following the ceremony. Each volunteer will likely place multiple wreaths.
- Wreaths should be propped against stakes designating a veteran's grave. Wreaths should face Hwy 231. Please follow additional instructions on where to place wreaths, as well as "how" they should be placed. There are 255 veterans scattered throughout the cemetery.
- We especially appreciate volunteers willing to help clean-up on January 4, 2020 at 9:00. Please contact email@example.com if you are interested in helping with the clean-up.
The most important thing to remember is to have a wonderful experience participating in the ceremony and thank you so much for help Wreaths achieve our mission to remember, honor and teach.
