Every year, members of our lodge meet up at Arlington National Cemetery to lay holiday wreaths on the headstones of our fallen heroes. This has been a very informal event for Anacostia since I joined. This year, Wreaths Across America is going to take place on December 17th, 2016 and the wreath laying starts at 10AM. There are other events that take place at various times, to include the laying of a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier by the President. For more information, please visit http://www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/.
Our lodge’s point of contact for this event is WB Matthew Martini. Please let him know if you would like to meet up.
