Wreaths Across Canada prides itself with ensuring that a memorable Service is provided annually to pay respect to those men and women who are buried at The National Military Cemetery at Beechwood Cemetery in Ottawa, Ontario. Personnel on the Board of Directors for Wreaths Across Canada have endeavoured to abide by our Mission Statement to REMEMBER those members of the Canadian Forces who lie in military cemeteries across Canada; to HONOUR and support those who have served Canada as members of our military forces; and to TEACH Canadian youth the value of freedom.
It is with profound regret that we must cancel the Wreaths Across Canada Service that was to have been held on Sunday, 2 December 2018. Rather than provide a condensed Service as we did last year and cause significant dissatisfaction, we have decided to cancel this Service in its entirety. Unfortunately, we have been overwhelmed with financial issues this past year, illness amongst our Board of Directors and several vacant Board positions which has necessitated this cancellation.
Separate Wreaths Across Canada Branches will hold Services on 2 December 2018. Notre Dame Cemetery, adjacent to Beechwood will hold their 4th Annual Wreaths Across Canada Service and Halifax will hold their 1st Wreaths Across Canada Service.
We appeal to you to not give up as our intention is to return and hold our regular Service in 2019.
