3. Saturday: Wreaths Across America at Marco Island Cemetery

At noon, Dec. 17, Wreaths Across America will be at Marco Island Cemetery to remember and honor  veterans through the laying of remembrance wreaths on the graves of this country's fallen heroes.  

The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution is a sponsor of Wreaths Across America nationwide. 

Place a wreath to honor a fallen veteran.

This will be the fourth year the Marco DAR chapter and Marco’s American Legion join to perform a ceremony honoring America’s veterans and to supervise the laying of wreaths at each grave of an American military member, according to member Chris Curle.

A family member or a volunteer will take a wreath to the grave of a veteran and will say the name of the veteran as the wreath is placed.

Approximately 160 military veterans are buried at Marco Island Cemetery, going back to the Civil War.

Friends and family of deceased veterans and the public are welcome to observe the ceremony and to participate in the wreath laying. To sponsor wreaths or to donate to the cause, visit https://www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/pages/159720/Overview/?relatedId=0 or search: Marco Island DAR Chapter 3093FL (FL0663).
