Volunteers Needed to Clean up WAA Wreaths at Greenville Union Cemetery

The time has come to pick up the WAA wreaths that were placed at the Greenville Union Cemetery during the 2018 Wreaths Across America Day Remembrance Program.

Fort GreeneVille Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution will be hosting the removal of WAA wreaths. Volunteers are invited to participate in this annual WAA Project.The WAA Retirement Ceremony will be on Saturday January 19th at 9:00am followed by the removal of WAA wreaths at Greenville Union Cemetery.

This is a special opportunity to again honor those who have served our country. Each Veteran's name is spoken as the wreath is retired so that they may live on our hearts and memories for all they sacrificed. Make the WAA Wreath Project at Greenville Union Cemetery one of your family’s holiday traditions.

Volunteers are asked to pick up ONLY those WAA wreaths placed in December, leaving any other wreaths or decorations in place. It is recommended to wear gloves and bring a small cutting tool to cut zip ties. It is also suggested to bring a long stick, mop or broom handle to carry several wreaths at a time.
