Residents are invited to help honor and remember as many fallen heroes as possible by sponsoring remembrance wreaths, volunteering on Wreaths Day, or inviting  family and friends.

A sponsorship will ensure that a wreath is hand-crafted of balsam and hand-tied with a red velvet bow in Columbia Falls, Maine. It will then be sent to one of the participating locations, where a volunteer will place it on the marker of a fallen hero. That volunteer will then say the recipient’s name to ensure that the legacy of duty, service and sacrifice of that veteran is never forgotten.

Sponsoring a wreath means a participant has the opportunity to join the nation in saying “thank you” to veterans.

*Note: Specific locations designated as “ceremonial-only” accept a limited number of sponsorships. Any additional sponsorships received beyond those used for the ceremony will be distributed to other locations.
