Welcome to the Evergreen 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 Evergreen 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.

Directions to Cemetery

Navigation systems do an adequate job finding the cemetery. When you arrive, please check in at Evergreen Chapel before laying wreaths at selected headstones in your assigned section(s).

Parking Instructions

There is plenty of parking around the cemetery, however, please give heed to the "No Parking" signs. This will ensure adequate room for guests and traffic. Designated handicap parking is available for those with state issued placards or license plates.

NOTE: Be mindful that there are deep irrigation ditches along many of the roadways in the cemetery - we'd hate to see you ruin a rim or tire!

We are happy that you are willing to help with our Wreath Across America ceremony at Evergreen Cemetery. Please do not forget to register to volunteer! That way you will get all updates about the cemetery itself.

  • Everyone of all ages and backgrounds is welcome.

  • Please follow the location coordinators instructions on where to place wreaths, as well as "how" they should be placed.
