Sonora Cemetery to Host Ceremony Honoring Veterans

Wreaths Across America, a national organization, is hosting a wreath laying ceremony Saturday, December 16, 2017, at 11:00 a.m., at the Sonora cemetery.

The ceremony is taking place in conjunction with more then 1,200 other locations across the country also participating in the event as part of National Wreaths Across America Day.

Coordinated and led by local volunteers, the Sonora cemetery has raised a total of $3,375 to place 320 wreaths on the headstones of our fallen service members. 

This annual event seeks to further the WAA mission of Remember, Honor, Teach, ensuring that the memory of those who served our country endures.

The event is free and open to the public.

Everyone is encouraged to participate, especially veterans, active service members and their families, in this special commemorative event.
