The Holidays are fast upon us once again. I started Wreaths For Veterans 5 years ago and with the
help of family, friends and community it has become a huge success. This event has grown every year
and brings people together in a way that is heartwarming and inspiring. It is the remembrance of those
veterans, their sacrifice and the celebration of their service that keeps this going. Last year we reached
our goal of placing a wreath at every headstone in the Sackets Harbor Military Cemetery and allowed
us to make a $1000 donation to a local Veterans group.

Community involvement is an important part of making this celebration a reality. This year I again ask
for you to be a part of this event with a contribution of funds, volunteerism and/or joining us in the laying
of the wreaths. With your help and the generosity of Simmons Farm in Copenhagen who makes them
all at cost, we can once again have a successful year.

This year the ceremony will be December 18th at 11:00 a.m. We have been blessed with nice weather
in the past and cross our fingers we will have that again. The ceremony will last a total of an hour but
the feeling you leave with will last long after. I encourage you to join us again or for the first time.
Please like and share our Facebook page – Wreaths For Veterans. There you can keep up to date on
the progress of fundraising, upcoming dates and even view previous years ceremonies.
If you have any questions or would like more information please contact me @315-783-5869. Please
mail donations with the form by December 10th. Thank you for your contribution and helping honor both
our fallen veterans and our local veterans. As one of the monuments states “We are here because they
are here.”
