On December 14, 2024 at 12:00 pm (Wreath Placement Immediately Following Ceremony), WV0005 - George Washington Chapter SAR will be helping National Cemetery of the Alleghenies to Remember and Honor our veterans by laying Remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes.

Ceremony and Volunteer Information
Welcome to the National Cemetery of the Alleghenies 's Wreaths Across America Page.
Wreath Clean Up Day
What goes up must come down. Please join us for wreath cleanup on Saturday, January 20, 2024 beginning at 8:00 a.m. Bring your hockey and broom sticks for faster cleanup! No formal sign up is required - just show up.
If you are interested in taking wreaths to feed your live stock or bring to your farm, please join us and take as many as you'd like. The rest will be recycled/composted.
We typically get a much smaller crowd attending this one compared to our ceremony (a few hundred people vs. a few thousand) so parking will be readily available in the cemetery.
If you need community service hours through your school, boy scout group, church, or other organization, please feel free to reach out using the contact info below and we can get you a confirmation letter of service hours following your volunteerism.
2023 Thank You
We are so grateful for the community's continued support and thank everyone who has sponsored a wreath, volunteered their time, or helped us spread the word about our mission. Thanks to your generosity, we reached our goal to ensure 16,200 veterans laid to rest at the National Cemetery of the Alleghenies was honored with a remembrance wreath.
Each year, approximately 2,000 new veterans are laid to rest at the National Cemetery of the Alleghenies. Therefore, the need for wreaths is always growing. We are now focused on getting a head start for 2024. Each handmade, fresh, live wreath is made in the United States with Maine balsam. The cost to sponsor one wreath is $17. We are grateful for any amount of generosity you can offer and are appreciative of your time for consideration.
On behalf of Wreaths Across America, the volunteers, and families of those laid to rest at the National Cemetery of the Alleghenies, we thank you for your support.

What does it mean to sponsor a wreath? It means you are supporting a yearlong mission to Remember the fallen, Honor those who serve, and Teach the next generation the value of freedom. Your sponsorship will support the new and existing programs developed to share the mission. And, it will place a wreath to honor an American hero at one of more than 3,700 participating locations this year on National Wreaths Across America Day – a day set aside to lay gathers as Americans with the same goal.
We can’t do that without your support, though. Your sponsorship will ensure a hand-crafted wreath of all-American balsam and hand-tied with a red velvet bow here in Columbia Falls, Maine. It will then be sent to one of our participating locations, where a volunteer will place it on the marker of a hero. That volunteer will then “say their name” to ensure that the legacy of duty, service, and sacrifice is never forgotten.
So, what does it mean to sponsor a wreath? It means you have the opportunity to join a grateful nation in saying “thank you” to those who stepped up to serve.
*Please Note: Specific locations designated as "ceremonial-only" accept a limited number of sponsorships. Any additional sponsorships received beyond those used for the ceremony will be distributed to other locations.
