1-5-21 Wreath Retrieval January 9

Friends of Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery invite volunteers to participate.

Volunteers are needed for Wreath Retrieval Saturday, January 9, at 10 a.m. at Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery, 11463 SH 195. No registration is required to participate.

 

The Friends of Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery and volunteers prepared and placed more than 9,000 wreaths at the cemetery in November as part of the annual Wreath Project. Retrieval is the final event at which the wreaths are picked up, sorted and loaded onto trucks for storage until next November.

 

Participants are encouraged to use the park and ride system to attend. Parking is at Texas A&M University – Central Texas on SH 20, and buses run between 8 a.m. and noon. Limited parking will be available at the cemetery. All participants are advised to anticipate traffic and arrive early.

 

Since the cemetery opened in 2006, the community has come together every holiday season to prepare, lay and retrieve wreaths for each grave in memory and honor of those laid to rest. The Wreath Project is wholly supported by donations and volunteers.
