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 those wreath laying volunteers requiring walkers or strollers may find it challenging.
  • We will make every effort to provide all volunteers the opportunity to place a wreath on a Veteran gravesite.
  • Please follow the location coordinator's instructions on where to place wreaths, as well as "how" they should be secured.
  • 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.
