The Ascension Veterans Memorial Park Foundation is now taking orders for a wreath to place on the graves of Ascension Parish veterans this Christmas season. The deadline to order a wreath for veteran graves will be November 30, 2020. This program is part of the nationwide Wreaths Across America program to remember and honor our deceased veterans during the holidays. The cost of a wreath is $15.00.
Wreaths ordered through the AVMP Foundation can be specifically placed on the graves of Ascension veterans through volunteers or families can pick up the wreaths and place on the graves themselves. Donations are also accepted which will be used to place a wreath on the grave of any veterans. Wreaths will be available at the Ascension Veterans Memorial Park in Gonzales on December 19, 2020. The wreath ceremony will take place at 11:00am on December 19th.
If you cannot make the ceremony, arrangements can be made for an alternate pick-up.
