2020 Wreaths Across America at King


No Public Participation for Wreaths at King Cemetery


It is with great disappointment that we inform you there will be NO public participation in Wreaths Across America at Central Wisconsin Veterans Cemetery at King, WI for 2020. Because of COVID 19 and the restrictions implemented on public gatherings, it was decided that it would be exceedingly difficult to ensure the safety and health of participants.

We want to inform everyone that we do have enough wreaths to cover every headstone at King. This was accomplished only because all of you came through with donations in this particularly tough year. We are extremely grateful to everyone.

We assure you that the wreaths will be laid. This will be done by American Legion Riders. We can then control the number of people in the cemetery and abide by the WI guidelines. Wreaths will be in place by December 19th as this is the National Wreaths Across America Day. People will then be free to visit the cemetery and view the wreaths.

Please let us reiterate, NO PUBLIC PARTICIPATION in the wreath laying a King Cemetery on December 19th. Please share this information with anyone you might know that was planning to attend.

The American Legion Riders District 8 are deeply disappointed that we will not be able to honor our veterans as a community this year in the same way as we have done in the past. Be assured that each veteran will receive a wreath and be honored as they deserve.

We look forward to gathering in 2021 to participate in Wreaths Across America for King Cemetery.
