Public invited to ceremony

-A A +A

The 2012 public ceremony at the Rotunda of the New Mexico State Capitol in Santa Fe, will be at 10 a.m. Dec. 10 to honor all who have served in the nation’s military.  
A wreath donated to the people of New Mexico by the Worcester Wreath Company, will be presented and remain on display through December. The event is celebrated simultaneously at other state capitols across the country and marks the hour that Wreaths-Across-America begins its annual transport of  gravesite wreaths to Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia.
The state wreath is three-feet in diameter, made from Balsam Fir and displays flags representing each of the branches of the military, as well as POW/MIA designated service members. An invitation  is extended to members of those branches to attend and be recognized during the ceremony.  
The mission of Wreaths-Across-America is summed up in its motto: “Remember, Honor, and Teach.” The Stephen Watts Kearny Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, invites the public to join them in this national event.  More information about Wreaths-Across-America can be found at wreathsacrossamerica.org/.
