Wreaths for veterans cemetery

Friday, November 13, 2009

I am once again reaching out to the community for sponsors for wreaths at the Missouri Veterans Cemetery in Bloomfield, Mo.

Last year's Wreaths Across America mission was awesome. I have created a Web page (www.tink-pgr.weebly.com) that is dedicated to Wreaths Across America, and I have photos of last year's ceremony for you to see what a wonderful thing it is to be able to honor our veterans with wreaths on their graves.

There is a sponsorship form to print out and mail with your sponsorship to the WAA office. The deadline this year is Nov. 25. Any money received after the deadline goes toward next year's WAA mission.

If you decide to sponsor a wreath or wreaths online, please remember to put in our information to be sure it is sent to the Missouri Veterans Cemetery in Bloomfield. Sponsoring Group ID Number: MOPGR0001. Cemetery Designation: Bloomfield State Veterans Cemetery. ID Number: MOSVCB.
