Join us on Saturday, December 15, 2018 @ 12:00 PM at the New Britain Baptist Church Cemetery for our annual Wreaths Across America Ceremony.
Wreaths Across America is a nationwide program to remember and honor our fallen heroes by placing holiday wreaths on the graves of Veterans laid to rest in cemeteries across the United States. Each December on National Wreaths Across America Day, the mission to Remember, Honor and Teach is carried out by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as at more than 1,400 additional locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea and abroad.
The New Britain Borough Historic Preservation Committee is proud to sponsor Wreaths Across America again this year at the New Britain Baptist Church Cemetery and H. Walter Harvey World War I Memorial. The ceremony will start promptly at Noon on Saturday, December 15, 2018. There is no better time to express our appreciation than during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. We hope you will join us to show our veterans that we will not forget the sacrifice they made for our freedom.
You can help honor the veterans buried in our historic cemetery by sponsoring a wreath. Each wreath is only $15.00 and your donation is tax deductible. To sponsor a wreath, please make checks payable to “WREATHS ACROSS AMERICA” and mail or drop them off to: New Britain Borough, Attn: WAA, 45 Keeley Avenue, New Britain, PA 18901.
