Strong support for veterans' 'wreaths'

I am pleased to report that the support of the Wreaths Across America ceremony scheduled for Sunset Hills Memorial Park has been wonderful.

As of Nov. 26, we have raised 457 wreaths through the efforts of Cascade Centennial Chapter, Sons of the American Revolution. Other organizations and individuals have raised another 70 wreaths. We will be able to place wreaths of the graves of 527 who served their country.

There are 1,800 veterans’ interred at Sunset Hills Memorial Park, and while we will not be able to lay wreaths on all of them, we will be able to demonstrate that our community truly recognizes their service.

The Wreaths Across America ceremony will be at 10 a.m. on Dec. 14. at Sunset Hills Memorial Park, 1215 145th Place S.E. in Bellevue. Allen Gray, Wreaths Across America
