ELIZABETH, NJ – The Elizabeth Garden Club is again remembering the city’s veterans by sponsoring Wreaths Across America at the First Presbyterian Cemetery on Broad street in Saturday, Dec 17 at noon.
Wreaths Across America is a national program whose mission is to remember the country’s fallen veterans, honor those who serve, and teach children the value of freedom.
Each December on National Wreaths Across America Day, volunteers at more than 1,100 locations in every state, including Arlington National Cemetery, lay wreaths on the graves of veterans. The volunteers are encouraged to say the veterans’ name aloud and to thank them for their service to keep the memory of veterans alive. The public is invited.
This year a tour of the historic First Presbyterian Church and the cemetery is included after the ceremony.
The Union County Board of Freeholders supports this event, along with the numerous individual donations.
