Wreaths Across America is Saturday

Volunteers across the state of Tennessee are working in support of national nonprofit Wreaths Across America (WAA) as preparations are made for National Wreaths Across America Day – this year on Saturday, December 16, 2023.

Currently, 15 separate cemetery locations in our local area, will take part in this national event that endeavors to honor every interred American veteran with a live balsam veteran’s wreath. Cyndi Clower, Coffee County organizer, told Thunder Radio about WAA mission:
