We need you to lend us a hand because at 1:30 pm on the first Sunday of each December we will be placing real balsam wreaths on the graves of 1,000 veterans at the National Military Cemetery at Beechwood Cemetery in Ottawa. We invite everyone, veterans, military personnel and the public to come to Beechwood and show that you care. You will never forget the sight of these beautiful wreaths adorning the rows and rows of military headstones.
No preparation is required. Just dress warmly. Team leaders and cadets will be on hand to guide you and show you what to do. The wreaths will be distributed following the brief ceremony. All we need is half an hour of your time.
Please bring your children and help teach them the value of freedom because it is for them that we remember and honour the sacrifice of our military heroes.
The other way to lend a hand is by sponsoring a wreath.
