Wreathes Across America

In cooperation with the Warrior Run-Fort Freeland Heritage Society, the Shikelimo chapter of the Daughter’s of the American Revolution sponsored their first National Wreaths Across America Day campaign which was also was the first representation for the Historic Warrior Run Cemetery on December 18, 2021 at noon.  Over 50 people were in attendance including United States Congressman Fred Keller, PA State Representative for the 85th Legislative District, David Rowe, and PA State Representative for the 108th Legislative District, Lynda Schelgel-Culver, and representatives from the Turbotville VFW                                                                             Post 8206 and the Clyde F. Mowrer Post 323                                                                               American Legion from Watsontown.

Each December on National Wreaths Across America Day, our mission to Remember, Honor and Teach is carried out by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as at more than 2,500 additional locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea and abroad.

Join us by sponsoring a veterans’ wreath at a cemetery near you, volunteering or donating to a local sponsorship group.  For information about Wreathes Across America, sponsorship or volunteering, please refer to https://www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/.
