Wreaths Across America
Post 642 for the past 5 years has sponsored the Cupetino Wreaths Across America Ceremony with the Gate of Heaven Cemetery. This ceremony is to Remember and Honor our veterans by laying Remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes. This event is a community event as we have numerous Scout Troops, the Rotary and citizen volunteers who prepare the wreaths, the grave sites and lay the wreaths on the day of the ceremony.
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. The wreaths that are placed on the grave markers will remain on the Veteran graves through Christmas and New Years Day.
All proceeds from the sales of the wreaths goes to Veterans and Veteran groups, scholarships for DeAnza College veterans, the Fisher House and the Defenders Lodge at the Palo Alto VA, the Yountville Veterans Home and other local veteran groups.
Here is the history and additional information on the Wreaths Across America Organization.
