Wreaths Across America in Scarborough
Scarborough Memorial Cemetery and Dunstan Cemetery are official locations for the 2022 National Wreaths Across America Day. They are part of the over 3,100 participating locations across the country to Remember, Honor, and Teach on Saturday, December 17.
Scarborough locals Bill and Anna Gallant have launched a Wreaths Across America in Scarborough this year. The goal for Scarborough Memorial Cemetery and Dunstan Cemetery is to raise enough funds to place sponsored veterans' wreaths on the headstones of all the local heroes laid to rest there, to ensure that the individuals who served to protect the freedoms of our country never be forgotten and to bring the community together in patriotic commemoration. They have been doing a lot of ground work and need some more help. On December 17, Scarborough Police department will assist them in placing wreaths at grave sites in the Dunstan Cemetery and also the Scarborough Memorial Cemetery (Old Blue Point Road).
They currently have nearly 100 wreaths sponsored and need another 100. It is $15 to sponsor a wreath. Those interested in volunteering for Wreaths Across America or sponsoring a wreath for Scarborough cemeteries are encouraged to learn more and donate what you can.
