Laying Wreathes

Posted on
Remember our fallen U.S. veterans. Honor those who serve. Teach your children the value of freedom. These are the first words that come across the Wreaths across America webpage while visiting. In November, Beth Blair had posted on her Face- book page about how the donated wreath count at the Dallas-Fort Worth National Cemetery was at a measly 28%. Nichole Parr heard the call and reached out to find out more information about donating and volunteering to lay wreathes. Thanks to the generosity of many of the members, the number slowly increased as donations were made in honor of loved ones since past. In the beginning of December, thou- sands of volunteers flooded the Dallas-Fort Worth National Cemetery to lay wreathes and say the names of those buried there. Gillian Allen and Nichole Parr were among the crowd. “Laying wreathes was a memorable event. It was just disappointing that not every grave received a wreath. Choosing who gets one and who doesn’t was heartbreaking. I hope we can participate laying wreathes next year too.” Nichole Parr had to say about the event. Special thanks goes to everyone that donated or volunteered both to lay and pick up wreathes. In the end 22,500 wreathes were laid at the cemetery.
