WEST WAREHAM – Progressive Grower is honored to sponsor Christmas wreaths for the graves of veterans at Massachusetts National Cemetery in Bourne, Mass. By supporting Wreaths Across America’s efforts to honor veterans this December, Progressive Grower hopes to play a small part in addressing the massive deficit in donations for wreaths from previous years. Wreaths will be laid during the Dec. 13 National Wreaths Across America Day ceremony.
Coordinated by non-profit Wreaths Across America, the event will feature speeches by Gold Star parents and end with hundreds of volunteers adorning graves in veterans’ cemeteries across the country and in Arlington, VA. With more than 58,000 grave sites at the Bourne cemetery, there are never enough wreaths to cover all of the graves. Every year, different sections of the cemetery are chosen for wreath placement so that eventually every veteran’s grave is adorned. Wreaths Across America’s mission of Remember, Honor, Teach, is carried out in part by organizing wreath laying ceremonies each December at veterans’ cemeteries in all 50 states and beyond. With no government funding, the cost of programs is paid by individual wreaths sponsors, corporate donors and volunteer truckers.
