Editor's note: The following information was taken from a Beyond the Yellow Ribbon Program press release.
Each year, donated wreaths are delivered to national veterans cemeteries around the United States, where thousands of volunteers take a quiet moment to show their gratitude and appreciation during the holiday season.
Richfield's Beyond the Yellow Ribbon Program invites locals to participate in Wreaths Across America by sponsoring a wreath.
Help remember, honor, and teach—by thanking a veteran.
To sponsor a wreath or for more information, go to WreathsAcrossAmerica.org. Please add Group ID# MNRBY01 and Location ID #MNFSNM to your order.
The deadline to sponsor a wreath is Nov. 26; wreaths will be placed at Fort Snelling Cemetery on Dec. 15. The cost is $15 per wreath.
