Wreaths Across America Wreath Retirement Day is January 20

January 20, 2024 has been designated as wreath retirement day at Fort Scott National Cemetery, beginning at 8AM, according to Diann Tucker, location coordinator for Wreaths Across America.  Volunteers to pick up wreaths, small flatbed trailers, pickups and other vehicles for hauling wreaths up to the provided dumpsters are needed.
    The response to lay wreaths back in December was overwhelming, but now it is time to remove them.  Your help is still needed to complete this year’s event.
    A last reminder that the Matching Funds Campaign ends January 16.  For each wreath we get purchased until January 16 we will get a free wreath donated to the cemetery for 2024 to be placed for a soldier who has not otherwise been sponsored.  This allows your donations to double in value.  Donations should be payable to Wreaths Across America and can be mailed to or left at Stewart Realty Co., 1707 S. National, Fort Scott, KS 66701.
