CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. –  Local Wreaths Across America supporters invite the community to contribute now to ensure the success of National Wreaths Across America Day 2021.


City officials and local volunteers honored veterans laid to rest at Riverview Cemetery on Dec. 19 with the placement of  balsam wreaths on their graves as part of National Wreaths Across America Day 2020.  Some 280 graves were adorned with wreaths during the solemn ceremony.


The first-ever local event was a great success, and organizers thank the community for their support and attendance.
