REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children the value of Freedom.

Welcome to the Moundsville Lions Club's Wreaths Across America Page. 

On 19 December 2020 at 1230, Moundsville Lions Club will be helping Mount Rose Cemetery to Remember and Honor our veterans by laying Remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes. Prior to laying wreaths in the cemetery, there will be a short ceremony and wreath laying at the Moundsville Courthouse at 1100am.

Please help us honor and remember as many fallen heroes as possible by sponsoring remembrance wreaths, volunteering on Wreaths Day, or inviting your family and friends to attend with you.

Thank you so much for supporting the Moundsville Lions Club and Wreaths Across America!

Here are some things to remember about the ceremony:

  • Each participant will be required to have the temperature taken prior to entering the cemetery, and fill out a form with their contact information and a statement they have displayed no cold/flu/COVID symptoms within the last 48 hours. Health Department Officials will be on hand to assist, and will maintain the forms for contact tracing purposes.

  • No one displaying cold/flu/COVID symptoms will be permitted to participate
  • Please wear weather appropriate clothing and footwear, as we have no control over the weather, it may be cold and snowy or even icy.

  •  Masks or face shields are requested for all participants.
  • 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.
