We decided a few years ago that members should contribute to their favorite charities rather than have a White Elephant gift exchange among members.

 


TEXAS NORTH STAR
SAMS CLUB EVENT

When :
December 14
What :
Wreaths Across America
Where :
D-FW National Cemetery
Details :
The following are the instructions for Wreaths Across America.

This year there are 22,000 wreaths to be placed.

Section Leaders: Section 12: Ken and JoAnne Bird.

Section Leaders: Section 13: Robert and Gayle Thomas

Friday, Dec. 13 - 8:00 AM - Move Wreath Boxes to Sections 12 & 13

Moving Ceremony Wreaths: On December 14th at 9:00AM, we need to move the wreath boxes to the various sections of the cemetery. We need volunteers and volunteer trucks for this task. The back entrance will be open. This task is usually done by 1 p.m.

Saturday, Dec. 14 - 11:00 AM Memorial Service

Saturday, Dec. 14 - 12:00 NOON - Placement of Wreaths on graves

Please do not open wreaths before noon!!! Last year, some leaders started before noon which caused pressure for surrounding section leaders.

We have told hundreds of people that they do not need to rush to their section after the ceremony.

Even if you are next to the ceremony and you believe everyone has arrived at your section, do not start before noon.

Give participants one wreath at a time. The cemetery is expecting 6 to 8 thousand people. We want everyone to be able to lay wreaths.

Once the participant has laid a wreath, they can come back for another wreath. Participants should not be carrying 2 or 3 wreaths at a time.

Wreaths will stain the headstones. The Cemetery will not allow us to lean the wreaths against the head stones.

Do not break down all the boxes. You should be able to place several broken down boxes inside a box that has not been broken down. Please don’t over fill the boxes.

Over stuffed boxes are too heavy and the bottoms will break when the boxes are being moved.

For those who are planning to come to the ceremony or helping at the sections on December 14th, you may want to arrive early, between 8:30 and 9:30a.m. for parking.

Please see attached Dallas-Fort Worth National Cemetery Map.

Hope to see you there.

Saturday, Jan. 18, 2020 - Removal of Wreaths from graves
