REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children the value of Freedom.
Welcome to the Kennewick Chapter DAR's Wreaths Across America Page.
On Saturday December 19th, 2020 at 9:00 am, Kennewick Chapter DAR will be helping Desert Lawn Memorial Park 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 Kennewick Chapter DAR and Wreaths Across America!
