On Saturday, December 18, 2021, Wreaths will be placed on the graves of Military Heroes, all across the United States of America. Again this year, the Patriot Guard Riders of Colorado has signed up to be a fundraising group in order to assist in the sponsorship of Wreaths. This arrangement is beneficial for two outstanding organizations. For each $15.00 Wreath purchased, $10.00 will go toward the purchase of the Wreath and the Colorado PGR will receive a $5.00 donation for each Wreath sponsored.
If you wish to sponsor a Wreath using the Colorado PGR Fundraising Group (CO0070P), please click on the following link: https://wreathsacrossamerica.org/CO0070P. Once you sponsor a Wreath using CO0070P, you can request placement at either Fort Logan National Cemetery, Pikes Peak National Cemetery or Fort Lyon National Cemetery.
Also, in Grand Junction, the Colorado PGR has been a fundraising group for a number of years. If you choose to sponsor Wreaths for the Western Colorado Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Grand Junction, please enter CO0003.
If any of you have questions or problems, please contact me at 303-518-8790 or email@example.com. Whether you decide to use the Colorado PGR or any other fundraising group, the obvious goal is to place as many wreaths as possible and your sponsorship is greatly appreciated. Please use the same contact information if you are not able to attend on December 18th, but, wish to have a Wreath placed on a specific grave. Simply provide the full name of the Veteran, the Cemetery section and site number.
For those who plan to help with the placement of the Wreaths on December 18th, there is a brief ceremony when each Wreath is placed. Once placed, the name the Veteran is spoken and either a hand salute or hand over the heart is rendered.
The deadline for ordering a Wreath for placement on December 18th will be Tuesday, November 30, 2021.
Thank you for your past and continued support.
