Memorial Day reminded me of Christmas Wreaths

Memorial Day is upon us, and I have been reminded of a wonderful way to memorialize veterans at Christmas – Wreaths Across America.org.  Over 15 years ago, Worcester Wreath Company in Harrington, Maine, began a tradition of placing wreaths on headstones in Arlington National Cemetery during the holidays.  Over the years, volunteers have placed over 90,000 wreaths in memorial.  In 2007, almost 300 locations participated in Wreaths Across America ceremonies, placing over 30,000 wreaths.  The 2008 ceremonies will take place on Saturday, December 13th, at 12 noon EST.  Give a donation today or mark your calendar so you’ll remember to participate later this year.

Here’s a beautiful wreath created by our professional designers.  They create seasonal, stock, and custom arrangements all year long.  This one is loaded with feathery ferns and glittered fronds, ribbons and glass balls.

It’s almost Friday!
