Wreaths Across America
Citizens of Bethel and surrounding areas, it is coming close to that time of year to honor our fallen heroes of all the wars and again remind us of their ultimate sacrifice. Each year the Civil Air Patrol sponsors Wreaths Across America, and as a member I have volunteered to be the location leader for the Riverside Cemetery (next to airport) where the wreaths will be placed. I am working with the American Legion, local businesses and people to get the word out. There are 191 veterans laid to rest there and our goal is to have a wreath on each and every one.
The CAP Squadron is actually based in Rumford, so we have chosen the St. Joseph Cemetery for wreath placement in that area.
The wreaths are $15 each and can be purchased online at Wreaths Across America website. Once there click on Sponsor A Wreath and complete the form inserting the following information into the appropriate spaces:
Group ID: MECAP037; Cemetery Designation: Riverside
Cemetery; ID: MERSBC.
If you have any questions, please call my cell phone at (207) 330-5795.
