Wreaths across America

wreaths





The Ellington Ad Hoc Patriotic Committee in cooperation with The Ellington Volunteer Fire Department, Inc. welcomes all to join us at our

Wreaths across America Ceremony
Saturday, December 17, 2016, 12:00 Noon

Ellington Center Cemetery, 95 Maple Street, Ellington, CT

If you would like to participate or sponsor a wreath

please contact Wilson Flynn at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or (860) 896-9053.

For 2016, the goal is to make it personal by reaching out to local communities to help place wreaths on the graves of local veterans. There are more than 450 veterans buried at Ellington Center Cemetery, and we are looking for local organizations that can help honor these veterans, as each $15 donation places a wreath.  Additionally, the Patriotic Committee has a fundraising group ID CT0039; for every 2 wreaths purchased, 1 is awarded to Ellington at no charge.

If you wish to honor a fallen service member by purchasing a $15 wreath, contact

Wreaths across America at (877) 385-9504 or visit the website at

WreathsAcrossAmerica.org using sponsor ID. CT0039 and location ID. CTECCE and your order will be delivered with the Town order. The wreaths will be presented during the Ellington Center Cemetery Ceremony.

From 1992 to 2006 the annual tradition of placing wreaths to honor the fallen was conducted at Arlington National Cemetery, largely unknown by the general public except for visitors to those hallowed grounds. In 2007, the Worcester family, along with veterans, and others who had helped with their annual Christmas wreath ceremony in Arlington, formed Wreaths across America to continue and expand this effort and support other groups who wanted to do the same. This non-profit organization continues the Arlington tradition as part of its mission to Remember, Honor and Teach.

In 2015, Wreaths across America placed over 900,000 wreaths at more than 1,100 participating locations across the country (Bunker Hill, Valley Forge, 9/11 Sites, Pearl Harbor) and beyond. This was accomplished with help from 2,047 fund-raising groups, corporate contributions, and donations of trucking, shipping, and thousands of helping hands. Their annual pilgrimage from Harrington, Maine to Arlington National Cemetery is known as the world’s largest veteran’s parade, stopping at schools, monuments, veteran’s homes and communities all along the way turning the eyes of the country towards the cemeteries and promoting veteran awareness during the holidays and all year long.
