Event description

Description

Please join Team RWB in the annual Wreaths Across America at Arlington National Cemetery! Team RWB will be participating as Docents for the fifth year in a row. There are two types of docents, so everyone can participate.

RUNNERS: One set will be the "runners", these people will have flags and work closely with their assigned Truck Crew Chief(s) (TCCs) and will be in the eyes and ears in the 60+ sections. They will flag people over to empty areas of their assigned section and let the TCCs know when sections or areas are full or need wreaths so they can in turn radio in statuses. These positions will be best for Key Volunteers who are more physically active.

FIXED: The other "fixed" docents will be strategically place in a fixed locations throughout Arlington National Cemetery as to be able answer questions from wreath layers. These questions will include grave locations, historical significant monuments/graves in the cemetery and in their section, nearest exits, time tables, etc. This position will do A TON of talking to the public and need to have a great attitude and be friendly. They need to have empathy as many wreath layers are there to lay wreaths for their family members. This position is best suited for those who cannot be as physically active.

TRAINING: Please make sure to attend ONE of the two training sessions, either 18 November or 2 December to participate as a docent. You do not need training to show up and lay wreaths!

Liz Fields (liz.fields@teamrwb.org) will be attending the 18 November training, and Lauren Lindros (lauren.lindros@teamrwb.org) will be attending the 2 December training.
