A Wreath for Every Veteran Grave
Welcome to the Ferro-Monte Chapter NSDAR (NJ0029P)'s Wreaths Across America Page.
For the 7th year the Ferro Monte Chapter, NSDAR is organizing Roxbury's participation in Wreaths Across America to honor our veterans by laying wreaths on the graves of the departed servicemen and women. We hope that you will be able to take part in this moving event.
It is our mission to place a wreath in conjunction with Wreaths Across America on Veteran Gravestones in the Succasunna cemeteries: First Presbyterian Church, the United Methodist Church and Flanders-Hillside. To Remember, Honor our Roxbury's Veterans and to Teach our future Veterans that we are and will be thankful for their service and show them “We Do Not Forget, We Will Never Forget”.
This year the ceremonies that are held across the country at more than 2,200 participating locations will be different as the national nonprofit makes every effort to meet CDC recommended safety guidelines while also adhering to state, local, and cemetery safety measures being implemented due to COVID-19.
At First Presbyterian, United Methodist and Flanders-Hillside cemeteries in Succasunna the following modifications have been made to maintain a safe and successful event.
? Wreath laying will be done by appointment only on Friday December 18 and Saturday December 19
? The Remembrance Ceremony will be virtual
? Details on appointment scheduling and the virtual ceremony will be announced shortly
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 Ferro-Monte Chapter NSDAR (NJ0029P) and Wreaths Across America!
