Wreaths Across America® recognizes the importance of remembering our fallen heroes, honoring those who serve, and teaching our children and others about the sacrifices made by veterans and their families to preserve our freedoms.  This annual ceremony will honor over 4,100 veterans and family members interred at the Washington State Veterans Cemetery.  The service is open to the community, after which guests are invited to assist with pacing wreath on individual gravesites.

Wreaths placed on graves are only possible through the generosity of public donations.  WDVA collaborates with the Ladies and Gentlemen of the Washington State Veterans Cemetery, a registered 501c3, on event planning and public donations.  To sponsor a $15 wreath for the Medical Lake Veterans Cemetery please go to the following website:  http://www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/ and enter Sponsoring Group ID WA0011 and Location WAWSVC or contact Joyce Durrant at 509-928-1189,  durrantjk@gmail.com

The service will be held on Saturday Dec 16, 2017 at 12pm at the Washington State Veterans Cemetery, 21702 W. Espanola Road, Medical Lake, WA 99022.  This is considered an outdoor event, so please dress accordingly.  Out of respect for the families we serve pets are not allowed on the grounds.  For questions or assistance please contact the Cemetery at 509-299-6280, cemetery@dva.wa.gov, or visit www.dva.wa.gov/cemetery.
