Ceremony and Volunteer Information

We are happy that you are willing to help with our Wreath Across America ceremony at Evergreen Cemetery Association. Please do not forget to register to volunteer in order to receive all updates about the event.

Here are some things to remember about the ceremony:

  • Everyone of all ages and backgrounds is welcome to the Memorial Service that precedes wreath laying.
  • There are few walking paths between cemetery rows, so wreath laying volunteers requiring walkers or strollers are discouraged.
  • To help ensure that all participants get the opportunity to place a wreath, tickets will be distributed to participants at the Memorial Drive entrance, to be exchanged for two wreaths.
  • Please follow the location coordinator's instructions on where to place wreaths, as well as "how" they should be placed.
  • There are no public restrooms on the grounds.

The most important thing to remember is to have a meaningful experience participating in the entire ceremony. Thank you so much for helping achieve the mission to remember, honor and teach.
