(Editor’s Note: The Parson Roby Chapter of the DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution) of Saugus issued the following press release this week.)
On December 16th at noon, the Parson Roby Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (MA0136P) is sponsoring its third Wreaths Across America event helping both Riverside and Old Burying Ground Cemeteries to remember and honor veterans by laying remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country’s fallen heroes.
To sponsor your wreath(s) at $17 each or to volunteer to help place wreaths on December 16th, please visit www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/MA0136P or use the QR code. There will be a brief ceremony at noon to honor all branches of the military followed by laying wreaths on our fallen heroes. Invite your friends and family to join us in honoring our servicemen and women. The cut-off date to order is November 28th.
2021 was our first year sponsoring this event which had over 360 wreaths sponsored. The community really stepped up and we are grateful for all the support we received. However, there are more than 1200 veterans’ graves in Riverside and we are hoping that between the community and businesses there will be enough sponsored wreaths to cover all those graves this year.
The Daughters of the American Revolution’s mission is to preserve American history and secure America’s future through education and promoting patriotism. For more information on how to participate or “What We Do” email the Parson Roby Chapter DAR at firstname.lastname@example.org.
