We want to share with you a great event that is happening in New Hampshire on December 15, 2012.
This is an idea that started with a Gold Star Family in 2007 and was inspired by the wreaths placed at Arlington National Cemetery (Worcester Wreath Company) the Blue Star Mothers decided we needed to answer this Christmas wish.

Saturday, December 15, 2012- 10:00am – Placing Wreaths
Saturday, January 12, 2013 – 10:00AM – Pick-Up Wreaths
The Blue Star Mothers of NH, sponsor of the program - Wreaths at Boscawen - would like your help in placing wreaths in Section 4 at the New Hampshire Veterans Cemetery. The wreaths being placed are 12" and will have a red ribbon. This wreath laying event will coincide with the day that the wreaths are placed on the graves at Arlington National Cemetery.
The Civil Air Patrol (CAP) will hold a ceremony at the Circle of Flags at Noon in conjunction with Wreaths Across America. The ceremony coincides with similar ceremonies across the United States of America with placing ceremonial wreaths on the military service markers. We invite you all to stay and support the CAP and Wreaths Across America.
Wreaths at Boscawen will be an annual event and the wreaths will be placed on different sections each year (currently plan for a 4 year rotation of sections). If you or someone you know has a loved one interred in a different section than the designated area, then they would be responsible to purchase/place the wreath.
Thank you for your continued support. We look forward to seeing you in December!!!
Proud Blue Star Mom
