National Wreath Laying Ceremony: Deadline for Purchasing Wreaths is Dec. 2  (Other Genealogical Events)
Santa Barbara Cemetery, 901 Channel Drive
This holiday season Daughters of Union Veterans honors Fallen Veterans and those who served by participating in Wreaths Across America in Santa Barbara. The National Wreath Laying Ceremony will take place on Saturday, December 14th at 10:00 a.m. at the Santa Barbara Cemetery, 901 Channel Drive, when the sponsored wreaths will be distributed amongst the grave sites of Veterans and those who served in our armed services. President Cathy Jordan announces that the local DUV is a sponsor for wreaths for this event at this cemetery this year.
Participation includes sponsoring the purchase of wreaths for $15 each (5 for $75), volunteering to help distribute wreaths, and/or attending the brief ceremony at the Santa Barbara Cemetery. Please click here to purchase wreaths under DUVCW Laura Belle Stoddard Tent 22’s sponsorship.  Anyone can participate; you do not have to be a member of any organization. You may also include a tribute or memorial for a specific veteran you would like to honor for the Wreaths Across America website.  Separate from our own sponsorship, wreaths may be purchased for cemeteries across the country provided they are registered with the site.
The deadline for purchase of a wreath is December 2, 2019.
Please contact Mary Hall if you have any questions.
