20 Oct 2018 - Wreaths Across America


The historic St George Cemetery is completely funded for Christmas wreaths as of 9-30 where 1100 Veterans are buried. Still need to raise monies to cover 500 graves at Tonaquint Cemetery (258 of 750 are currently covered) and 20 Veterans graves at Shivwits Cemetery.  Participation is really needed at this BBQ fundraiser.  Remember The Daughters of the American Revolution and Zion Harley Davidson are honoring over 1800 deceased Veterans this December 15th for  Wreaths Across America. Please come out and help support them with the Wreaths Across America fund raiser.  Entertainment will be provided.

Please join us on Saturday, October 20th, at Zion Harley Davidson for our 3rd annual BBQ fundraiser to benefit Wreaths Across America (WAA).  Our goal this year is to REMEMBER and HONOR approximately 1800 veterans buried at three participating locations:  Tonaquint Cemetery, Shivwits Cemetery and, for the very first time, historic St George Cemetery.  The GOOD NEWS is that we already have sponsors for 1300 wreaths as of this date.  We are very confident that this event annually hosted by Zion Harley Davidson can and will get us much, much closer to the finish line.  

Please help us SPREAD THE WORD about this BBQ fundraiser by circulating the attached flyer and encouraging all you know to come out and support this wonderful cause.  I have attached a link to a mission briefing video that really paints the picture of what Wreaths Across America is all about and why so many people across the nation passionately support it.  I have also attached a news link of our 2017 WAA ceremony so you can also share the impact Wreaths Across America has on our community.   

Please feel free to contact me at any time about this specific event or Wreaths Across America in general.  This year's national WAA ceremony day is scheduled for Saturday, December 15th.  Please SAVE THE DATE as we will need plenty of helpings hands to lay over 1800 wreaths.
