Help Aleli Parlor Sponsor Wreaths Across America

REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children the value of Freedom.

On December 20, 2021 at 09:00 AM, volunteers will remember and honor our veterans by laying Remembrance Wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes at California Central Coast Veterans Cemetery (CCCVC). The public is welcome to attend to watch the ceremony.

Please help us honor and remember as many fallen heroes as possible by sponsoring remembrance wreaths. Wreaths can be sponsored for $15 each. You can sponsor a wreath on behalf of Aleli Parlor by clicking here.The deadline to sponsor a wreath is Tuesday, November 30, 2021. 

The CCCVC has already met their goal of a wreath on every grave (315 wreaths). Please feel free to sponsor a wreath at another California cemetery that has not met their goal:

  • Bakersfield National Cemetery
  • California City Memorial Park
  • Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery
  • Golden Gate National Cemetery
  • Los Angeles National Cemetery
  • Miramar National Cemetery
  • Northern California Veterans Cemetery
  • Riverside National Cemetery
  • Sacramento Valley National Cemetery
  • Sacramento County Veterans Memorial Cemetery
  • San Francisco National Cemetery at the Presidio of San Francisco
  • San Joaquin Valley National Cemetery
  • Yountville Veterans Home Cemetery

What does it mean to sponsor a wreath? It means you’ll honor an American hero at one of more than 1,200 locations nationwide this year on Wreaths Across America Day. It’s a day that’s been set aside to lay wreaths at the places where we remember, honor and teach about our veterans: cemeteries, monuments, parks… Anywhere we can pay tribute to their sacrifices. The wreaths are hand-crafted of all-American balsam and hand-tied with a red velvet bow in Columbia Falls, Maine. It will then be sent to the location you choose, where a volunteer will place it on the marker of a fallen hero. That volunteer will then “say their name” to ensure that the legacy of duty, service and sacrifice of that veteran is never forgotten. 

Aleli Parlor is proud to have the opportunity to join a grateful nation in saying “thank you” to our veterans. Thank you so much for supporting the Native Daughters of the Golden West Aleli Parlor No. 102 (CA536) and Wreaths Across America!
