Sponsorship deadline nears for Wreaths Across America
Program hopes to place wreath at every veteran's grave
By Richard Burger
Grandview's Wreaths Across America came very close last year to reaching the program's goal of placing a wreath at every one of the 468 veterans' graves in the local cemetery.
This will be the fourth year a Wreaths Across America event will take place in Grandview, and Ginger Emerson, one of the local event organizers, said they hope to make certain that every veteran interred there is honored. Last year, more than 400 wreaths were laid.
The deadline for wreath orders is Nov. 15, and wreaths may be purchased for $15 each, and $5 of each one purchased will go to the Gold Star Mothers of Washington organization to help support their programs, Emerson said.
