Colusa Cemetery to participate in Wreaths Across America

Home News Colusa Cemetery to participate in Wreaths Across America

National nonprofit Wreaths Across America (WAA) announced that the Colusa Cemetery in Colusa has once again joined the effort to support the mission to Remember, Honor, Teach, as an official location for 2020. This is the second year that the cemetery will participate in this national event.

Wreaths Across America started as a simple gesture of thanks that has grown into a national movement of dedicated volunteers and communities coming together to not only remember the nation’s fallen and honor their service, but to teach the next generation about the sacrifices made for us to live freely.

The Colusa Cemetery will take part in Wreaths Across America on Saturday, Dec. 19 at 9 AM.

“We did not cancel this year’s event in hopes to provide a path back to normalcy,” said Daniell Frampton, District Manager for the Colusa Cemetery District. “We are asking those in attendance to comply with State “social distance procedures”, and seats will be spaced 6-feet apart.”

The event will honor local veterans with the laying of remembrance wreaths on the graves of veterans and the name of each read aloud.

“This is an outdoor event and will last about an hour,” she said.

The goal for the Colusa Cemetery is to raise enough funds to place over 750 veterans’ wreaths on the headstones of all the local heroes laid to rest there, to ensure that the individuals who served to protect the freedoms of our country never be forgotten and to bring the community together in patriotic commemoration.

To sponsor a wreath visit wreathsacrossamerica.org/pages/159899. The cost is $15 each, or 5 wreaths for $75. Other quantities and discounts available. The wreaths will be delivered to the Colusa Cemetery and presented on a veterans grave.

“Please consider purchasing a wreath, attending the ceremony and laying a wreath on a veterans grave,” said Frampton.

If you would like to assist, or volunteer for the event, please contact Frampton at (530) 458-2650 or email colusacemeterydistrict@frontier.com.
