American Legion grateful for donations to Wreaths Across America
What a wonderful showing of support American Legion Auxiliary Unit 82 has received after deciding to join with the Wreaths Across America program this year, with the goal of providing as many wreaths as possible to decorate the graves of fallen soldiers at Cheltenham Veterans Cemetery. Because of the generosity of many local individuals, we have raised close to $3,000 toward the purchase of wreaths to show appreciation and gratitude to those who fought and died for our freedom.
If you have not done so and would like to participate, you can send a check made out to Wreaths Across America to ALA Unit 82, P.O. Box 1035, La Plata, MD 20646. The members of American Legion Auxiliar y Unit 82 invite you to join us at Cheltenham this year to show our fallen heroes your gratitude and appreciation on Saturday, Dec. 17, at noon.
