The Coventry Cemetery Commission will be participating in Wreaths Across America for the fourth year. Wreaths across America endeavors to lay a wreath on every veteran’s grave on this day, here in Coventry, across the United States and in places around the world where veterans are interred.
The ceremony will take place at 12:00 PM at Coventry Cemetery but will be for veterans in Coventry Cemetery, Nathan Hale Cemetery, Grant Hill Cemetery, St Mary’s Cemetery, Old South Burying Ground, and Carpenter Cemetery.
Donations are $15.00 per wreath and can be for a veteran or a specific veteran’s grave. Donations can be made by check or online. Checks should be made to “Wreaths Across America” and sent to Coventry Cemetery Commission at 1712 Main St., Coventry, CT 06238. Online payments may be made at www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/CTCCCC where payment can be made by credit card, PayPal or GooglePay. This link is also available on the Coventry Cemetery Commission Facebook page. Grave specific donations must include the name of the veteran and the cemetery.
