     NATIONAL WREATHS ACROSS AMERICA DAY

           REMEMBER           HONOR           TEACH

                           

Fort Harrison volunteers will lay wreaths on the graves of all veterans buried in the Dayton Cemetery. They will join thousands of other volunteers across America who are presenting wreaths at more than 1400 cemeteries on that same day.

 

The Dayton community is invited to participate in the ceremony as we honor our hometown heroes on this special day. Volunteers are needed to present the wreaths on each individual grave. There are at least one hundred veterans buried in the cemetery. If you would like to help lay the wreaths, contact Kathy Boase at kboase3@verizon.net. If you would like to participate by donating a wreath, $15 each, send a check to Fort Harrison, Inc., PO Box 366, Dayton, VA 22821.  Deadline for donations is November 15th.

 

After the wreath laying, the Fort Harrison Board of Directors invites all volunteers to a Christmas Open House.
