Wreaths Across Canada (www.wreathsacrosscanada.ca) is an organization made up of veterans and current serving members of the Canadian Armed Forces whose sole purpose is to remember the men and women who served their country in times of peace and conflict and who now rest in cemeteries across Canada.
This year, due to financial difficulties, we are placing Wreaths at the beginning and ends of all rows and personnel will be able to register for a wreath to place on their family member’s or comrade’s grave.
For further information about the ceremony, contact President Frank Larabie at 613-285-6775 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
