Wreaths Across America Remembers, Honors, Teaches


By Staff Reports

Join us on December 15, 2018 as we honor, remember and teach future generations about the service and sacrifice of our military members in the annual Wreaths Across America Day.

The event will take place at two locations; the Northern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Fernley and the Southern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Boulder City. Both events begin at 9:00 AM.

Over the years, the event has become a tradition for many Nevada families. It is also an annual event for many service organizations including Boy and Girl Scout Troops as well as church and civic groups.  The ceremony remembers and honors veterans by having participants lay a “wreath of remembrance” on each gravesite and saying the name of each veteran aloud as they do so.

Last year hundreds of participants gathered at the veterans cemeteries in northern and southern Nevada. There is still time to make a donation by visiting the following links. Please note; there are options to make your donation to specific cemeteries and/or fundraising groups. (Just click those options):
