Wreaths Update!

Greetings All:

The wreaths have arrived! Those who have pick up orders to place yourselves will get calls tomorrow. We will be working feverishly to get all sorted and ready for placement Saturday.

AMAZING NEWS: Morrill and Karen Worcestor of Wreaths Across America donated 200 wreaths to our project so we could meet our goal to place a wreath at every headstone in Oakland Cemetery. This is the first time we are able to honor every veteran at Oakland! So, in 2010 we are very happy to report that wreaths will be placed at Oakland Cemetery. St. Joseph’s Cemetery, Memory Gardens, Swisher, Oak Hill Cemetery in Coralville and Lone Tree in Johnson County. Wreaths will also be placed at the cemetery in Riverside. THANK YOU to all who sponsored wreaths!

The weather promises to be cold and perhaps snowy. We will perservere with our plans! For each of us this will be a small sacrifice compared to those who have and are serving our great country. Remember, DRESS WARM!

We have a couple of jobs that we could use assistance with:

1) We could use some volunteers to place wreaths at St. Josephs on Saturday. We were going to do this Friday; however with the impending snow they would be covered by Saturday. Please email here if you would like to place the wreaths about 8AM on Saturday.

2) We will need 2-3 people to make sure the walkways and chairs are kept clear of snow if it is snowing. Please email here if you can lend a hand.

Don’t forget– we have shuttle service in and out of Oakland!

Let’s make this this best ceremony ever!
