Fundraising Efforts Underway to Support
Wreaths Across America 2021
Local volunteers are already working hard to ensure that all veterans laid to rest at Fort Scott National Cemetery are honored next December on National Wreaths Across America Day. Now through January 15, 2021, any $15. wreath sponsorships received through the local “Friends of Fort Scott National Cemetery” fundraising group will be matched by Wreaths Across America.
Our community was recently blessed with the goal met to lay a wreath on over 6200 graves at Fort Scott National Cemetery. The goal for next year is to again place a wreath at the headstone of every veteran buried at Fort Scott National Cemetery and spread patriotism and commemoration for the ultimate sacrifice they made for our country. Each wreath is a meaningful gift of remembrance for an appreciated American who knows what it means to serve and sacrifice for the freedoms we all enjoy. We are grateful to the community of Fort Scott and the volunteers who participated in our mission to “ Remember, Honor and Teach”.
To sponsor a $15. Veteran’s wreath through Friends of Fort Scott National Cemetery you can mail checks payable to Wreaths Across America to Stewart Realty Co., P. O. Box 937, Fort Scott, Kansas, or call for instructions to use your debit or credit card (620-223-6700). This is an excellent opportunity to double the effect of your donations. Fundraising for this local event is a monumental task and it is not too early to start. Your support is greatly appreciated. All donations for this matching funds effort must be received no later than January 15, 2021.
