VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY!!!
Earlier this year, the Kane VFW announced its community service project as “Wreaths Across America” at our local cemeteries, with the goal to raise enough funds to put a Wreath on each of our Heroes graves over Christmas.
Wreaths Across America VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES:
*Thursday December 15th at 9:30 a.m. at Kane Lumber and Fuel. The VFW needs volunteer help to assist with offloading.
*Saturday, December 17th is the big day. Early morning, 8:00 a.m., we need assistance loading 180 boxes, each with 9 Wreaths, into pickup trucks and trailers and transporting to Forest Lawn, Mt Tabor, St Callistus and Kanesholm cemeteries.
The short ceremony will start sharp at Noon on December 17th at the Memorial at the front of Mt Tabor cemetery with the Kane VFW and then the process of laying Wreaths at our Veterans graves can begin.
Please come out and assist us, it will be a memorable occasion for everyone in Kane who has a Hero Veteran there! Contact Dave Swanson at 814-598-3490 or any VFW member for further details,
Donations for this project are also needed and accepted through the VFW.
