Wreaths Across America – Blanket Barrancas
Kiwanis of Big Lagoon is once again partnering with Wreaths Across America to provide and place live wreaths on as many of the 47,000+ graves at Barrancas National Cemetery. Last year about 2000 individuals, corporations, schools and other organizations provided sponsorship for about 12,000 wreaths. While impressive, 12,000 wreaths represented about 25% of the graves at Barrancas.
In addition to mass placements, we accept specific placement requests, allowing friends and family members to be sure their loved ones’ grave has a wreath.
Each year we involve as many young people as we can in this effort because a focus on strengthening communities one child at a time is the Mission of Kiwanis. Remember – Honor – Teach.
Individual wreaths can be sponsored for $15. Bronze Sponsors (10 wreaths for $150.00) and above will be listed in the program distributed at the Ceremony on December 16, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. The last day to order wreaths is November 28, 2017.
Order forms are available at www.BarrancasWreaths.com, as well as instructions on contacting us if you would like to volunteer on December 16. Our coordinator works on placing all volunteers where they can be best used.
Thank you for helping Blanket Barrancas.
