REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children the value of Freedom.
Welcome to the Deschutes Memorial Gardens's Wreaths Across America Page.
On December 16, 2023 at 09:00 am, Wreaths Across America will be at Deschutes Memorial Gardens 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.
We are committed to ensuring the safety of our community and are not holding an indoor Wreaths Across America ceremony at our location this year. Please join us to lay veteran wreaths outdoors though!
Please help our location lay wreaths at as many graves as possible by clicking the red "Sponsor" button. Or, if you would like to volunteer to participate in the wreath laying ceremony, please click the “Volunteer” button next to the cemetery name below, and don't forget to click the "Invite" button to invite your friends and family to join you.
Thank you so much for supporting Deschutes Memorial Gardens and Wreaths Across America!
