Wreaths Across America Ceremony at Gulf Cemetery
Gulf Cemetery will host a Wreaths Across America Ceremony on Saturday, December 16th at 11AM. The Historic Gulf Cemetery will be joining with Arlington National Cemetery and over three thousand cemeteries across the country for the annual Wreaths Across America Ceremony. A brief ceremony including a nationally-coordinated moment of silence will precede the placing of the wreaths. Unlike the memorial day ceremony, this event is informal and those attending are encouraged to be in comfortable attire. Children are encourage to participate in the wreath laying and many are part of the ceremony.
