Remember A Veteran ~ Sponsor A Wreath!

Hello All:
The leavs are nearly off the trees.  You are probably thinking of buying your turkey.  AND we are working feverishly to get to 324 wreaths in our fourth year of hosting the WAA Ceremony.  We would love, for the first time, to be able to honor every identified veteran in Oakland Cemetery.  As of today we are 63 wreaths short.  We are close!  If you have made a contribution—THANK YOU! 

If you have not sponored a wreath or two, would you consider it?   Perhaps you could help us through your workplace?  place of worship?  civic organization?   We are so close that it would be a shame to not reach this goal.  All checks must be in the office by Monday, November 22nd.
To update you on the other cemeteries in Iowa City and through the counties:
We have as follows:
Lone Tree:  24
Swisher:  7
Riverside: 30
Memory Gardens:  7
St. Joseph’s:  32

Let’s remember those who fought for our freedom!


University Of Iowa ROTC Joins Wreaths Across America

As the local Army ROTC program (University of Iowa) we felt this program was a very worthwhile experience for our young Cadets. It is a great opportunity for each of the participating cadets to publicly recognize the service and sacrifice of our local veterans and their families. As current university students and future Army Officers, this experience reinforces that service to both nation and community is honorable. Overall, a great experience for our cadets.
