Grand Strand Chapter Auxiliary Collecting Funds for Wreaths Across America
By Peggy DeVivo
"A person dies twice: once when they take their final breath, and later, the last time their name is spoken." -- Banksy
Again, this year the Chapter Surviving Spouses will be collecting funds at our dinner meetings from September to November for the Wreaths Across America annual event December 16, 2017 - during which wreaths will be placed on the graves of veterans at all the national cemeteries across the nation.
This year’s theme ‘I’m an American" focuses on the celebration of differences, seeking to build bridges.
Donations collected at our dinner meetings will be sent to the Blue Star Mothers of Coastal Carolina. All wreaths cost $15.00. Every two wreaths we donate will be matched by a third wreath. Please be generous so every veteran’s grave has a wreath. The deadline for ordering the two wreaths to get a third is TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2017
