There's still time to sponsor a wreath for cemetery sites

To the editor:

As I walk through the cemetery this year, I am saddened to think of the soldiers that will not have a wreath on their site. As of this writing, I have less than 400 wreaths sponsored for Coral Ridge Cemetery and there are over 3,000 sites. How would you feel if one of those sites were your loved one?

Even though the time is short we can fill this order with the help of each and every one. There is still time to sponsor a wreath by sending a check made out to Wreaths Across America P.O. Box 325, St. James City, FL 33956. You can also go online to wreathsacrossamerica.org/FL0516.

Wreaths may be purchased for $15 each, 10 can be purchase for $150. Donations of any size are always appreciated. Deadline for ordering wreaths is Nov. 27.

Volunteers are needed for the following dates: Dec. 7 (Pearl Harbor Day), 9 a.m., to mark the sites; Dec. 14, 11 a.m., to place the wreaths; and Jan. 4, at 9 a.m., to remove the wreaths. If you would like to do the honor of placing a wreath on the memorial during the ceremony to commemorate all the veterans from your branch of service or you have questions, text me at 239-671-8135. Please join us in letting them know, we will never forget.
