Wreaths Across America Bay County 2017
03/17/2017 to 11/30/2017

Spread the word about our Wreaths Across America Bay County for our 2017 campaign. We are in need of Volunteers and Donations to make the laying of the Christmas Remembrance Wreaths on December 16, 2017 a success.

 

Last year we did one cemetery Lynn Haven along with 10th Court Cemetery in Lynn Haven. Again, this year we will be doing Lynn Haven Cemetery, but this year, we will be adding: Millville Cemetery, and Kent Forest Lawn Cemetery for a grand total of 3 cemeteries and 1 Veteran Memorial – Panama City Garden Club Memorial off Balboa. 

 

The committee/community has taken on a big responsibility - but we feel with the Veteran Clubs and Community Support we will be able to raise the funds and people needed for all the sites. With your wide community outreach, we need your help to get the Volunteers we need and the funding. Hope that you will be able to help us spread the word.

 

If you need more information, please see our facebook page or feel free to contact our committee.
