The Town of Newbury is going into their three year of hosting the Wreaths Across America program. Wreath Across America started, ‘National Wreaths Across America Day’, with a goal of to covering all Veterans grave markers nation-wide with a Christmas wreath.
Last year about half of the Veteran grave markers in town received a wreath. That’s more then double the amount of wreaths the program has their first year in Newbury. Creativity and out-of-box thinking proves to be the root of the programs success in Newbury.
Linking of with local community groups, and businesses the program has grown year by year. This year our goal is to provide a wreath for every Veteran grave marker in Newbury (requiring roughly 600 wreaths).
With out the support from local business, the community and friends and family sponsoring wreaths there will be no wreaths to place. If you, or your place is interested in sponsoring a wreath visit http://www.NewburyWreaths.com
Details about this years ceremony are still being planned out. Keep checking Newbury Wreaths as information is constantly being added.
We are always looking for volunteers to help with this great program. If you are interested or would like to learn more please send us an email at NewburyWreaths@gmail.com
