Local Effort Underway to Support Wreaths Across America

Local volunteers and the Wyckoff Area Garden Club are working hard to ensure that the 225 veterans laid to rest at the Wyckoff Reformed Church Cemetery are honored in December on National Wreaths Across America Day.

This year, the wreaths will be laid at 10 am on Saturday, December 16, 2017 and the ceremony, open to the public (held simultaneously at more than 1,000 locations across the country) will take place at Advent Lutheran Church, 777 Wyckoff Ave. at noon.  The goal is to place a live balsam fir wreath at the headstone of every veteran buried there and announce each person’s name, to honor their memory.

“Each and every wreath is a gift from an appreciative person or family who knows the meaning of serving and sacrificing for the freedoms we all enjoy,” said Karen Worcester, executive director of Wreaths Across America.  “We are humbled that Wyckoff is participating in our mission to Remember, Honor and Teach.”

To purchase a wreath, send a check in the amount of $15 for each wreath sponsored, made out to Wreaths Across America, and mailed to: WRC Cemetery, 294 Everett Avenue, Wyckoff New Jersey 07481 or online at WreathsAcrossAmerica.org. Click on “donate” and search “Wyckoff Reformed Church Cemetery” or “07481”.  We will receive 3 wreaths for every 2 purchased when you donate through the Wyckoff Area Garden Club. All checks must be received by Friday, November 17.

The Wyckoff Area Garden Club has donated $400 to help reach the goal of 225 wreaths. WAGC does not benefit financially from this effort. Donating through WAGC provides 3 wreaths for every 2 purchased.

Wreaths Across America is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization founded to continue and expand the annual wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery.  The mission of WAA is carried out in part each year by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington, Pearl Harbor, Bunker Hill, Valley Forge, as well as at more than 1,000 veteran cemeteries and other locations in all 50 states and beyond.  The mission has expanded and the goal this year is to place 1.1 million wreaths across America.
