REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children the value of Freedom.
Welcome to the Jacksonville Memory Gardens's Wreaths Across America Page.
On December 17, 2022 at 12:00 pm, Wreaths Across America will be at Jacksonville Memory Gardens to Remember and Honor our veterans through the laying of Remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes and the act of saying the name of each and every veteran aloud.
Please help our location lay wreaths at as many graves as possible by clicking the red "Sponsor" button. Or, if you would like to volunteer to participate in the wreath laying ceremony, please click the “Volunteer” button next to the cemetery name below, and don't forget to click the "Invite" button to invite your friends and family to join you. We start at 11:45, come early to park either at the cemetery and we will have golf carts to help or can park at the mall next door. Welcome to bring chairs for seating. We are a family friendly ceremony, all are welcome and we will place the wreaths at the end of the ceremony.
Thank you so much for supporting Jacksonville Memory Gardens and Wreaths Across America!
