Final Reminder: Royal Canadian Legion – Wreaths Across America

Comrades,

As many of you are aware, the Royal Canadian Legion US Zone, Branch #25 representing the San Francisco Bay area is a sponsor of the U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps (USNSCC) Arkansas Division.  Each year, the cadets seek sponsors to purchase wreaths as a part of the Wreaths Across America event.  A wreath can be sponsored for $15 and a portion of each sponsorship goes to our cadets.

I ask that you visit https://donate.wreathsacrossamerica.org/?pageId=22107&relatedIds=15539&productId=114 and contribute to their number of local wreaths that will be placed at the National Cemetery at the Presidio here in San Francisco.

Additionally, if you are available on Saturday, 16 December at 11:00am I would encourage you to join the cadets – along with members of the Royal Canadian Legion – as volunteers to place the wreaths (regardless if you are able to sponsor any wreaths yourself).  The event is described as:

Ceremony and Volunteer Information

We are happy that you are willing to help with our Wreath Across America ceremony at San Francisco National Cemetery at Presidio (CAPNSF). Please do not forget to register on the San Francisco National Cemetery at Presidio (CAPNSF)!  That way you will get all updates about the cemetery itself.

Here are some things to remember about the ceremony:

  • Everyone of all ages and backgrounds is welcome.
  • Ceremonies around the world will be starting at the same moment, so please be on time.

  • Please follow the location coordinators instructions on where to place wreaths, as well as “how” they should be placed.
  • We especially appreciate volunteers willing to help clean-up. Please check in with the location coordinator if you are interested in helping with the clean-up.

The most important thing to remember is to have a wonderful experience participating in the ceremony and thank you so much for help Wreaths achieve our mission to remember, honor and teach.

Last year, your generous sponsorship of 1 Remembrance Wreath helped to make National Wreaths Across America Day possible. To provide your support again this year, please click “Make a Similar Gift This Year” or click “New Ways to Honor and Remember” below for great new ways to honor and remember our veterans:

Make a Similar Gift This Year

New Ways to Honor and Remember

In conclusion, I cannot thank you enough for supporting the families that will have an empty seat at their table this holiday season because they have a loved-one currently serving or one who has made the ultimate sacrifice. This time of year is hardest for those families and, by remembering and honoring their loved-one, you will make it a little easier. Thank you so much for remembering America’s finest.

My very best wishes for the happiest and healthiest holiday season,

Karen Worcester
Executive Director

[eNewsletter #162] Always The Biggest Challenge…

From the Wreaths Across America organization.


Always The Biggest Challenge

With less than two weeks to go, folks are hard at work all over the country making preparations for the wreath-laying events. Trucks are being loaded as I write and will be dispatched to over 1300+ locations on the east coast, west coast and everywhere in between.
But the biggest challenge – and this is somewhat surprising – is that it always takes a big, final push to cover Arlington.
This year, well over a million wreaths will be placed in total. But we are still accepting sponsored wreaths for Arlington National Cemetery and folks are watching the counter closely.
If you are feeling the call of the mission to Remember, Honor, and Teach… now is the time. And we thank you for your support.

If you have already sponsored, please tell your friends and family over this Thanksgiving week. There are so many families who will be without a loved one this holiday, because one is away and serving… or in some cases missing one who made the ultimate sacrifice.
