Wreaths Across America
REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children the value of Freedom. In December, a Wreaths Across America event will be held at Parsons Cemetery to Remember and Honor our veterans through the laying of Remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country’s fallen heroes and the act of saying the name of each and every veteran aloud. More than 1,300 veterans are laid to rest in Parsons Cemetery and each year we gather to honor these veterans.
In partnership with Operation: We Care, the event includes a procession, keynote speaker, laying of honor wreaths for each branch of our armed services, and the laying of a remembrance wreath on each monument of a veteran.

Spring Clean-up Day – At the start of the Spring season, a group of volunteers helps to beautify and clean the cemetery for our impending visitors. If you are interested in assisting in this endeavor, please reach out to us. We would love to have you.
