Maryland Independent - - Community Forum -

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. More in­for­ma­tion can be found at www.wreath­sacrossamer­ica.org.
