Knights of Columbus Fundraiser for Christmas Wreaths for Veterans Graves

On Sep 21st and Sep 22nd, the council will be taking donations to help fund a very special event.

All the donations made will be used to purchase Christmas Wreaths which will be placed on the graves of veterans in December.

The wreath laying will be done on Dec l4th at the Brig. Gen. William C Doyle Memorial Cemetery in Wrightstown NJ.

We are doing this to assist Wreaths Across America to place wreaths nationwide on that day. Last year we, through your donations, were able to donate 515 wreaths. Nationwide, Wreaths Across America placed 1,800,000 wreaths, all on the same day at over 1400 participating locations, and for the first time in history, WAA placed 9,473 wreaths on the graves at the American Cemetery in France.

We now have the capacity to place wreaths on specific graves. If you have a loved one interred at this cemetery we can place a wreath for you. All you need to do is give us the name and, if you have the information, the location, and we will take it from there.

Please try to help with a donation and help us to surpass our donation of last year.
