Wreaths Across America takes place on Saturday, December 14, at 12:00. Parking at the cemetery is VERY limited in the winter. Ample parking is available at Sanford Junior High School and frequent shuttles will be provided.
This is a family event, but please remind your children that the cemetery is a place of reverence and respect, not a playground. No running or playing on or around grave markers. This link offers educational information about the the symbolic meaning behind the gift of a wreath that you might like to share with your child.
Please dress accordingly, Maine’s winter weather might make you wish this was an indoor event. Sorry, it’s not. The Administration building will be open for those who need to access the restroom.
Please leave your pets at home. The Veterans Cemetery follows the U.S. Department of Justice’s ADA requirements for service animals: THE SERVICE ANIMAL MUST BE TRAINED TO PROVIDE ASSISTANCE TO A PERSON WITH A DISABILITY. It is our goal to ensure access to all visitors in accordance to Title 32 Code of Federal Regulations Part 553, which prohibits pets in the cemetery except for service animals.
