Wreaths Across America set for Dec. 17, wreaths needed

Wreaths Across America

CLARKSVILLE, TN – The City of Clarksville is hosting a wreath-laying ceremony for the service members resting at Riverview Cemetery during National Wreaths Across America Day on Saturday, Dec. 17 at 9 a.m. to remember and honor their legacy and service.

National Wreaths Across America Day is held simultaneously across the country in more than 2,700 locations. The local community, veterans, active-duty military, and their families are encouraged to attend and learn more about the organization’s year-long mission to Remember, Honor, and Teach.

This is Riverview’s third year participating in Wreaths Across America and over 340 wreaths are needed for the event.

“Our mission is simple,” said Riverview Cemetery manager Angie Sykes. “To make sure that every single American hero is never forgotten after they give the ultimate sacrifice for our country.  Have you sponsored your remembrance wreath yet?”

Riverview Cemetery was established on Feb. 23, 1800, as City Cemetery. It was renamed on June 7, 1927 for its view of the Cumberland River. Today, it’s the oldest known public burial ground in the area and has service members for every American war interred within its grounds.
