On December 14th you can be part of something special either in person or by donation. Wreaths Across America New Paltz will be placing wreaths for Christmas on the graves of veterans at the New Paltz Rural Cemetery located at 81 Plains Road in New Paltz. Wreaths Across America in New Paltz is inviting you to join them along with over 2 million volunteers nationwide that will be doing the same thing in cemeteries near their hometowns.

Volunteers will be at the cemetery from 12 PM to 3 PM. If you aren't able to make the event but would like to make a donation to pay for a wreath you can contact Wreaths Across America New Paltz or go to the Wreaths Across America official website.

Wreaths Across America New Paltz shared on their Facebook page that they would like you to please use NY0270 code when sponsoring a wreath so they get the extra wreath. As of this past Monday they reported that they have exceeded their goal but hope to keep going so please make it a point to donate and use their code.

They also would greatly appreciate if people could stop by on the 14th to place wreaths and say thank you to our veterans buried in New Paltz Rural Cemetery. If you visit the Wreaths Across America website you will see that their are communities all over the Hudson Valley and the nation remembering our veterans during the holiday season. Feel free to look up other locations and donate a wreath to them as well.
