Directions to Cemetery

Navigation systems do an adequate job finding the cemetery. When you arrive, please follow the staff and signs to the area you signed up to volunteer.  We do however ask that you enter from the north using exit 314, then West on Hwy 48, turn left onto Co Rd 625, turn right onto Co Rd 476W for 1.6m then left onto Co Rd 476B South.  The cemetery entrance will be on your right.  Entering from this direction helps to alleviate traffic from I-75.  Please sign-up for wreath distribution timeslots.  You can find a map of the trailer locations under the PHOTOS tab or follow our facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/WreathsAcrossAmericaBushnell for updates and announcements.   

Parking Instructions

All traffic will be ONE WAY when you enter the cemetery.  We ask that you PARK ON THE LEFT, DRIVE ON THE RIGHT. This will help us to continue the movement of traffic.  You can reference a map, under the PHOTOS tab here on our website.  We will have two areas open for lot parking, one in the 600 block and one in the 400 block (adjacent to the ceremony section) Staff will direct you into these lots to help with overflow.  Once you have received your wreaths you are able to go to any section in the cemetery to place your wreaths, just remember traffic will continue to be one way, so it might mean circling back.  After you have placed your wreaths we ask that you leave the cemetery to allow others to Remember our fallen veterans.  This will help us to continue to move traffic.  Two exits, Maintenance or the Main Exit.  We ask that you honor our volunteers and FNC staff with parking/traffic control.  Thank you for your help in our mission to Remember~Honor~Teach.
