Ceremony and Volunteer Information
We are happy that you are willing to help with our Wreath Across America ceremony at Marietta National Cemetery . Please do not forget to register to volunteer! That way you will get all updates about the cemetery itself.
We invite everyone to participate and we have no age limits. Weather could be an issue, so please dress appropriately for being outside in the elements as the entire program takes place outdoors. We are usually finished laying the wreaths by 1:30, but you are welcome to stay as long as you please and to enjoy the solitude and beauty of the cemetery.
Please arrive no later than 11:15 to participate in the ceremony which will begin at noon and be conducted simultaneously around the country at over 1500 cemeteries. We lay the wreaths following our solemn ceremony to ensure that everyone has a chance to participate in honoring the 18,839 soldiers buried in our cemetery.
Here are some things to remember about the ceremony:
- Everyone of all ages and backgrounds is welcome.
- Ceremonies around the world will be starting at the same moment, so please be on time.
- Please help ensure that all participants get the opportunity to place a wreath.
- Please follow the location coordinators instructions on where to place wreaths, as well as "how" they should be placed.
- We especially appreciate volunteers willing to help clean-up. Please check in with the location coordinator if you are interested in helping with the clean-up.
The most important thing to remember is to have a wonderful experience participating in the ceremony and thank you so much for help Wreaths achieve our mission to remember, honor and teach.
