Boise Cemetery Will Participate in Wreaths Across America
Next Saturday, December 17th, volunteers will get together to lay wreaths on the graves of veterans across the country, and a Boise cemetery will be part of it. Here's how you can volunteer.
Wreaths Across America happens every year, and it starts at the Arlington National Cemetery and moves across the country. There are more than 1100 cemeteries participating this year. What a beautiful way to decorate and honor these heroes at the holidays.
The Idaho State Veterans Cemetery will participate again this year, and that's at 10100 Horseshoe Bend Road in Boise. The Wreaths Across America event will be from 10 to 11 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 17th. There are more than three thousand veterans and spouses at the cemetery, and sponsors will pay $15 for each evergreen wreath that decorates a grave site. They'll have a short ceremony before the wreath-laying, and anyone can attend, and then help put the wreaths on graves too.
The Idaho Statesman says, with the help of the Eagle Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, volunteers will also be part of the Idaho Statehouse Wreath-Laying Ceremony at 10 a.m. Monday, Dec. 12, at 700 W. Jefferson St., Boise.
