Wreaths Across America: Community welcome at laying of wreaths at Rest Haven Rockwall

REMEMBER the Fallen. HONOR those who Serve. TEACH children the value of freedom.

ROCKWALL, TX – Nov. 24, 2020 – Wreaths Across America will be at Rest Haven Funeral Home and Memorial Park in Rockwall on Saturday, December 19 to remember and honor our veterans through the laying of remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country’s fallen heroes and the act of saying the name of each and every veteran aloud. Due to Covid restrictions, this year’s ceremony will be outside beginning at 11:30 a.m. with public wreath laying beginning at noon. The event is hosted by Rest Haven and Civil Air Patrol Lakeshore Squadron.

Feel free to bring your change to honor our veterans as well. This is especially important for any of the veterans who do not receive wreaths this year. Placing a penny means you visited; placing a nickel indicates you and the deceased trained at boot camp/basic together; placing a dime means you served together; placing a quarter indicates you were with them when they were killed.

Please practice social distancing and mask protocol.

Rest Haven’s thanks everyone for helping to lay wreaths at as many graves as possible by sponsoring a wreath. Wreaths are available for purchase until November 30 >>https://www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/pages/17195

As of today: 294 wreaths have been sponsored, with 710 to go! That’s 29.3% of goal.
