Blue Star Mothers of New Hampshire ~ Wreaths for Boscawen
The Blue Star Mothers of NH, sponsor of the program - Wreaths at Boscawen – would like your help in placing wreaths in Section 4 on December 15, 2012 at the New Hampshire Veterans Cemetery starting at 10:00am. The wreaths being placed are 12" and will have a red ribbon. The wreath laying event will coincide with the day that the wreaths are placed on the graves at Arlington National Cemetery.
This is an idea that started with a wish made by a Gold Star Family in 2007 that were facing their first Christmas without their son who is buried in Arlington National Cemetery, and was inspired by the wreaths placed at Arlington National Cemetery by the Worcester Wreath Company, the Blue Star Mothers of New Hampshire decided we needed to answer their Christmas wish.
Soldier’s Helpers once again will be on hand with refreshments and hot drinks.
At noon the Civil Air Patrol (CAP) will hold a ceremony at the Circle of Flags in conjunction with Wreaths Across America. The ceremony coincides with similar ceremonies across the United States of America with placing ceremonial wreaths on the military service markers. We invite you all to stay and support the CAP and Wreaths Across America.
We will return on January 12, 2012 starting at 10:00am to help pick up all the wreaths and all are welcome to join us.
We need your help and are accepting donations to help us purchase a 12" Balsam Wreath with a four loop red bow. The wreaths cost is $6.50 and are purchased locally and will be delivered to the NH Veterans Cemetery on December 15th.
Donations can be made in Honor of or in Memory of someone that will be entered on our Tribute page. Donation forms can be downloaded from the Wreaths for Boscawen webpage and mailed to us.
