The Blue Star Mothers of NH, sponsor of the program - Wreaths at Boscawen – would like your help in placing wreaths in section 3 and section 4 plus one at each Columbariums, on December 17, 2016 at the New Hampshire Veterans Cemetery starting at 10:30am. The wreaths being placed are 12” and will have a red ribbon. The wreath-laying event will coincide with the day that the wreaths are placed on the graves at Arlington National Cemetery.
This is an idea that started with a wish made by a Gold Star Family in 2007 that were facing their first Christmas without their son who is buried in Arlington National Cemetery, and was inspired by the wreaths placed at Arlington National Cemetery by the Worcester Wreath Company, the Blue Star Mothers of New Hampshire decided we needed to answer their Christmas wish
Soldier’s Helpers and the NHTI Veteran Club once again will be on hand with refreshments and hot drinks.
At noon the Civil Air Patrol (CAP) will hold a ceremony at the Circle of Flags in conjunction with Wreaths Across America. The ceremony coincides with similar ceremonies across the United States of America with placing ceremonial wreaths on the military service markers. We invite you all to stay and support the CAP and Wreaths Across America.
On January 14, 2017 we will be returning to the New Hampshire Veterans Cemetery to help pick up the wreaths.
We are accepting donations to help us purchase a 12” Balsam Wreath with a four loop red bow. The wreaths cost is $7.00 and are purchased locally and will be delivered to the NH Veterans Cemetery on December 12th. You make your donation in Honor of or in Memory of someone that will be entered on our Tribute page.
