REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children the value of Freedom.
Welcome to the Wreaths Across America - North Huntingdon Area Cemeteries Page
On December 17, 2022, Wreaths Across America will be at Union, Immaculate Conception and Long Run Cemeteries 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 note for 2022 if you wish to recognize veterans at Penn Lincoln, you will need to pre-purchase the wreath, pick it up at the ceremony and individually place the wreath. We are unable to officially place at Penn Lincoln this year. Please notify us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can reserve your wreath.
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 Wreaths Across America-North Huntingdon Area Cemeteries, Union, Immaculate Conception, and Long Run. "Be An American Worth Fighting For" to fulfill the mission.
