GREENVILLE – The time has come to pick up the Wreaths Across America wreaths that were placed at the Greenville Union Cemetery during the 2018 Wreaths Across America Day Remembrance Program.
Fort GreeneVille Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution will host the removal of Wreaths Across America wreaths. Volunteers are invited to participate in this annual Wreaths Across America Project.
The Wreaths Across America Retirement Ceremony will be at 9 a.m. Jan. 19 followed by the removal of Wreaths Across America wreaths at Greenville Union Cemetery.
This is a special opportunity to again honor those who have served the country. Each veteran’s name is spoken as the wreath is retired so that they may live on citizens’ hearts and memories for all they sacrificed.
Volunteers are asked to pick up only those Wreaths Across America wreaths placed in December, leaving any other wreaths or decorations in place.
It is recommended to wear gloves and bring a small cutting tool to cut zip ties. It is also suggested to bring a long stick, mop or broom handle to carry several wreaths at a time.
