We want to share with you a great event that is happening in New Hampshire on December 13, 2014.
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.

The Blue Star Mothers of NH, sponsor of the program - Wreaths at Boscawen. Each year the sections are rotated, so all veterans and their families are honored (since 2007).
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.
We have tried to answer most of the questions you may have on our FAQ page, if you have a question that we have not answered contact us and we will do our best to get back to you with in a few days.
Thank you for your continued support. We look forward to seeing you in December!!!
Proud Blue Star Mom
Clean up volunteers are always needed too. Clean up at New Hampshire Veterans Cemetery will take place on
Saturday, January 10, 2015 – 10:00AM
Just in from Mike Horne ~
This morning we made the decision to cancel the wreath pick-up Saturday for safety reasons.
The crust on the snow is slippery, even when it breaks and people step through it.
And there’s some ice on walkway and pavement that when dusted with snow can be a problem.
We’ll send out a News item from here and change the web calendar event saying the pick-up is canceled.
Please do the same with your web and FB.
The staff will pick wreaths up throughout the winter as the schedule allows and any remaining when the snow retreats.
Like we did last year.
