Listen here https://www.iheart.com/podcast/139-maverick-lulu-28366298/episode/wreath-laying-at-sarasota-national-cemetery-73933260/ for all the information you need on how to help, by donating to this mission, to ensure we have enough wreaths for all of our Heroes (22,000 Heroes are currently resting there and 16,200 wreaths are needed this year - those numbers don't match due to the columbarium). .
Most importantly though, we need donations for wreaths, to be placed. We are currently half way to our goal, to ensure ALL of our local Heroes are remembered with a Wreath.
In terms of placing wreaths. There will be 3 dates to choose from, Thursday, December 17th, Friday, December 18th and Saturday, December 19th. There will be a time, each of those 3 days reserved for "family only".
