REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children the value of Freedom.
Welcome to the Rotary of Gilmer's Wreaths Across America Page.
On Saturday, December 17, 2022 at 11AM, Rotary of Gilmer will be helping Sunset Memorial Park and local cemeteries to Remember and Honor our veterans by laying Remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes.
Please help us honor and remember as many fallen heroes as possible by sponsoring remembrance wreaths, volunteering on Wreaths Day, or inviting your family and friends to attend with you.
Thank you so much for supporting the Rotary of Gilmer and Wreaths Across America!
