12/15/2018 – Our first “Wreaths Across America” Program was held.  Wreaths were laid on the graves of the 71 veterans whose final resting place is in our cemetery.
12/14/2019 – 2nd annual “Wreaths Across America” Program was held on this rainy day but it didn’t dampen our spirits. We held a short ceremony followed by the laying of 73 wreaths on the graves of our fallen heroes.
12/19/2020 – 3rd annual “Wreaths Across America” Program was held at noon two days after a snow storm. Even during the Covid-19 Pandemic, attendance reflected how important it is to honor our veterans. The ceremony included participation of Boy Scout Troop 1600, the Allentown Police Department 3 man rifle detail 21 gun salute, playing of taps, and singing of the National Anthem, followed by the laying of 75 wreaths on our fallen heroes grave sites at our two cemeteries.
12/18/2021 – Our next “Wreaths Across America” Program is being planned for noon. With a surplus of wreath sponsors from last year, we do not plan to fundraise for more wreaths. Please consider sponsoring a wreath at another location that can use your generosity.

     The mission of “Wreaths Across America” started in 1992 by the Worcester Wreath Company in Maine to honor our fallen veterans at Arlington Cemetery.  Today over 1400 locations in the United States and beyond take part in this ceremony.  The Military Recognition Committee is pleased to honor and remember our fallen veterans by participating in this nationwide wreath laying ceremony.
