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

Welcome to the Ashland Cemetery's Wreaths Across America Page. 

On December 14, 2024 at 12:00 pm (Wreath Placement Immediately Following Ceremony), Wreaths Across America will be at Ashland Cemetery 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.

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. 

The Theme this year is to "Live With Purpose". Wreaths are $17.00 to sponsor. If you have a Veteran buried at Ashland Cemetery, you may request a Grave Specific wreath to place yourself at 11:15 am on their grave. This will give you time to honor your family veteran before the Ceremony. We will be holding the Ceremony at 12 noon. Immediately following it, all our Volunteers including the Grave Specific volunteers will be given the rest of the wreaths to place on our Honored Service Men and Women's graves. Their name will be spoken before laying the wreath to remember their courage and sacrifice for our Freedom and American way of life.

Thank you so much for supporting Ashland Cemetery and Wreaths Across America!
