Welcome to Wreaths Across America - Sarasota

Sarasota National Cemetery

 Goal is 10,750 and we did it!

Each fall the Sarasota Military family and other participating organizations band together to secure wreath sponsorships for the Sarasota National Cemetery (SNC). 
This year's overall wreath goal is 10,750.  Together we will accomplish this task. The community is welcome to join in as SMA and others pay honor and respect to our local veterans laid to rest at SNC.

By sponsoring a rememberance wreath you are demontrating your patriotism and thankfulness for our nation's armed services and the veternas who have served.

There are thousands of veterans resting at SNC who have no family or friends left to remember them.  The Wreaths Accross America day is the only time their grave is visited all year.

SMA and the community aim to cover each and every grave site again this year with an evergreen wreath, and we hope you will not only sponsor a wreath but attend the wreath-laying ceremony as well.

National Wreaths Across America Day
Saturday, December 17, 2016
Sarasota National Cemetery
9810 State Road 72, Sarasota

Ceremony begins at 9:30 a.m.
Families with loved one's resting at SNC may law wreaths first.
Guests arrive after 7:15 a.m.
Parking is first come, first parked.
There is no handicapped parking available.

Wreaths' clean-up day is Saturday January 14, 2017 starting at 7:15 a.m.   The clean-up takes about an hour and a half, and we leave the SNC better than we found it.  Please mark your calendars for both events!

* Please note:   The Sarasota Military Academy receives a five-dollar rebate from the Worchester Wreath company for each wreath sponsorship the Academy secures.  When you sponsor a wreath for the Sarasota National Cemetery with SMA, you are doing something wonderful for both a resting veteran and for SMA!
