Wreaths Across America Sarasota
Wreaths Across America Sarasota is a non-profit organization dedicated to honoring and thanking our veterans for their service and sacrifice. The Wreaths Across America mission is to “Remember, Honor, and Teach”. The annual wreath laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery started in 1992 is now performed around the country at various locations that include the Sarasota National Cemetery that now has over 5,200 gravesites.
Our 2013 community goal was achieved to raise sponsorship for 6,800 wreaths! Click here to see our 2013 progress to date. We currently have over 6,800 wreaths as of 12-2-13. Future donations will count towards next years goal which will be higher. The ceremony will be held on Saturday December 14, 2013 at the Sarasota National Cemetery.
Volunteers are needed to help lay wreaths starting at around 8:45 a.m. and the ceremony will begin at approximately between 10:30 - 11:00 a.m.
