2016 Goal is 10,700 Wreaths
Each fall the Sarasota Military family and community friends
band together to secure wreath sponsorships for the Sarasota
National Cemetery. The community is welcome to join in as
SMA and others pay honor and respect to our local veterans laid
to rest at SNC.
By sponsoring a rememberance wreath you are demontrating your
patriotism and thankfulness for our nation's armed services and
the veternas who have served.
SMA and the community aim to cover each and every grave site
again this year with an evergreen wreath, and we hope you will
not only sponsor a wreath but attend the wreath-laying ceremony
