Thank You re: Wreaths Across America

Today was an amazing day… The 10th anniversary of the Wreaths Across America Event at CT State Veterans Cemetery, and the First time that we have covered the entire cemetery with a Wreath at each resting place that was able to receive a Wreath. There was quite a bit of preparation leading up to this day. With the fundraising by various people and groups, the volunteers that helped unload the tractor trailers when the wreaths arrived in Middletown, and the volunteers that re-loaded the wreaths onto the trucks for transport to the cemetery and the volunteers who again unloaded the trucks and distributed the wreaths to the appropriate cemetery sections. There seems to be a theme here…. Volunteers. Without the Volunteers that assisted these past months, the outcome certainly could have been different. A lot of time and effort was expended leading up to this day.

Then the placement of Wreaths on the Veterans final resting place….. Again it took an army of volunteers to do that as well. The final result was was nothing short of amazing.

A huge Thank You to the members of the CT PGR, NL MC Club, and various other groups and individuals who came out and stood the flag line and to the first timers, we hope to see you on future flag lines.

Wishing you the happiest of Holidays, and a Safe Happy and Healthy New Year…..
