Wreaths Across Canada will hold its annual ceremony at the National Military Cemetery (NMC) at Beechwood cemetery in Ottawa at 1:30 pm on the first Sunday, of December each year.
For environmental and economical reasons we have made adjustments to the Wreaths Across Canada Service at the National Military Cemetery at Beechwood.
Wreaths will be placed at the beginning and ends of all rows and Family members attending the Service will be able to lay a wreath on their loved one’s grave.
WREATHS ACROSS CANADA endeavours to “REMEMBER” those members of the Canadian Forces who lie in military cemeteries across Canada; “HONOUR” those who served Canada as members of our military forces; and “TEACH” Canadian youth the value of freedom.
It is anticipated that there may be snow on the ground and it will be cold so dress warmly with suitable footwear. Should you bring warm drinks, please be sure to take the containers with you when you leave.
Bring your camera as the sight of the hundreds of wreaths on our veterans’ graves is something that you will want to record and share.
