‘Wreaths Across America’ planned at Greenwood Cemetery Saturday, Dec. 18
The Fowlerville Fourth of July Committee is proud to announce that they are sponsoring the 3rd Annual ‘Wreaths Across America’ on Saturday, Dec. 18, at the Greenwood Cemetery in Fowlerville.
The program will start at 12 noon, with the gates open at 11 a.m.. The noontime start will coincide with the ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery and similar events at over 2,500 other cemeteries across the nation. Each ceremony is as varied as the men and women it honors with speakers, moving sentiments, pageantry and often music. One thing every ceremony has in common is the placing of wreaths on grave sites to honor those who have served, many offering the ultimate sacrifice while serving this nation.
The approximate hour-long ceremony in Fowlerville will feature remarks from State Senator Lana Theis, State Rep. Bob Bezotte, State Rep. Ann Bollin, and Fowlerville Village President Carol Hill.
The ceremony will be highlighted by the laying of wreaths for all of the military service branches, first responders, MIA/POWs, Gold Star families, and new this year Service Dogs.
There is no charge for this event. Veterans, their family and friends and the general public are all welcome to attend.
Brandon Denby, chairman of the Fowlerville 4th of July committee, will serve as the Master of Ceremonies and may be reached at (517) 546-0270, or by email @ BDenby@LivGov.com with questions.
