Deadline to sponsor holiday wreath for veterans’ graves is Nov. 30
The Abner W. Cooper Memorial Post 27 of the American Legion is once again participating in the Wreaths Across America project.
For a first-time effort last year, all things went better than expected. This year, the Post scaled down on how support was requested as compared to last year. There will be no solicitation in front of Ramey’s with the assistance of Cub Scout Pack 126. The only mechanism this year is through the Wreaths Across America website by using the link www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/MS0050P.
The deadline to order is Monday, Nov. 30.
Once the final count is known, the Post will announce delivery logistics. It is anticipated to be at the Lawrence County Courthouse again on the national Wreaths Across America Day Dec. 19.
Over the next couple weeks, maybe at your own Thanksgiving gathering, the Post hopes you and/or your family will choose to recognize your military legacy this year through the Wreaths Across America program.
