Thank you from Wreaths Across America

Dear Community, 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank so many of you for the success of Wreaths Across America. On Dec. 14th, Catawba Island Township Cemetery took part in a very special tradition of placing Christmas wreaths on the gravesites of veterans. The support, help and donations that were provided to us by this wonderful community were amazing. We truly are at a loss for words. The weather was cold, windy and snowy, but the ceremony was absolutely perfect.
