Tuesday, November 14, 2017

We are excited to announce the calendar for Wreaths for Biloxi National Cemetery- 2017. This is the 5th Annual Laying of the Wreaths, and this year we will be covering all of the graves! Friday, Dec. 1, 2017, we will have a bow replacement event at 0900 at Biloxi National Cemetery. This is a new event where we will be replacing over 10,000 old bows with brand new ones in preparation for Saturday's ceremony. Please come out and help on FRIDAY and invite other groups as well as we make these important and necessary preparations for Saturday's ceremony. The formal ceremony will begin on Saturday, Dec. 2, 2017, at 1100 with the Laying of the Wreaths to immediately follow. Volunteers will also be needed to help pick up all 20,000 wreaths on January 6, 2017, at 0800. This year we will have three tractor trailers to load! Thank you to all of those who continue to support this local recognition of those who proudly served our wonderful country!
