Staff Report

Kremmling, Colorado – Members of the Grand County community will gather to honor veterans during the holiday season as part of the annual Wreaths Across America Day (WAA). The VFW Auxiliary and the Town of Kremmling have volunteered to conduct the WAA ceremony this year at the Kremmling Cemetery on Saturday Dec. 12 at 11 a.m. Seven ceremonial wreaths will be placed to remember all soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines who served, honor their sacrifices, and teach our younger generations about the high cost of our freedoms.

Currently 126 wreaths are slated for delivery to Kremmling.

In 2015 it is projected that around a million wreaths will be placed nationwide, by over 600,000 volunteers as part of the Wreaths Across America mission to Remember, Honor, and Teach.

Wreaths across America TM (WAA) is a national nonprofit organization founded in 2007 to continue and expand the annual wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery begun by Maine businessman, Morrill Worcester, in 1992
