Wreaths Across America

Beginning in1992, the Worcester family, owners of the Worcester Wreath Company of Harrington Maine, began laying wreaths at the Arlington National Cemetery. Because of the growing interest across the country after seeing pictures of the wreaths placed at Arlington, the family along with veterans and other groups, formed Wreaths Across America organization in 2007. They have since added over 545 other locations.

Last year the Manassas Lioness Lions Club along with the Daughters of the Confederacy added our local Confederate Cemetery on Center Street to their list. On Saturday, December 13th 2014 at noon sharp, all of these cemeteries will be holding a ceremony to honor our fallen heroes at the same time including our local cemetery. Donations for the wreaths can be made at the Manassas City Police Dept and at the Flower Gallery in Bull Run Shopping Center.

The public is invited to attend this second commemoration ceremony. Local dignitaries, the Manassas City Police Color Guard and bagpipe, and others will present a short program including the laying of the wreaths. Besides 14 marked stones, there is a large monument for the unknown heroes numbering over 211 and veterans from WWI, WWII, and Vietnam.

The Whitt’s Harley Davidson, which is next door at 9321 Center Street, has generously offered for attendees to park in their lot nearest to the cemetery. Please mark your calendar and join us in honoring these fallen soldiers.
