Wreaths Across America
To remember, honor and teach is, according to their website, the mission of Wreaths Across America. A special ceremony placing Christmas wreaths on the graves of veterans at the Willow Valley Cemetery will be held Dec. 19 at noon. Help is needed to make sure that each grave has a wreath by sponsoring one or more. Visit the Wreaths Across America website and click on the Willow Valley Cemetery location.
Volunteers are also needed for this third annual ceremony. Clint Ingram, owner of Ingram Funeral Home, and Marie Higgins, owner of Curves, in Mooresville are coordinators for this local ceremony.
