Scouts raising $ for wreaths

Boy Scout Troop 366 is launching an effort to raise funds for Wreaths Across America again this year. The Troop is seeking help to raise enough money to place wreaths on all the veterans’ graves at Ridgelawn Memorial Cemetery.
By sponsoring a wreath, you can show gratitude to our hometown fallen heroes, honor those who serve and their families, and teach younger generations the value of freedom. This year’s theme is “Be an American Worth Fighting For.”
“Our fallen service members sacrificed to ensure our freedom, we can do our part by being active participants in our communities,” said Kim Burean, Service Project Coordinator for Boy Scout Troop 366. “Placing a wreath not only honors those who have gone before, but reassures living veterans and their families that they will never be forgotten.”
Every veteran’s name is spoken aloud when a wreath is placed on their grave.
A $15 sponsorship will pay for one wreath made of live greenery to be placed on a veteran’s grave. Or you can take advantage of the “three-for-two” sponsorship special where Wreaths Across America will donate one wreath for every two that are sponsored.
Local sponsorships can be made by visiting the Boy Scout Troop 366 Wreaths Across America website http://bit.ly/WAATROOP366 and clicking on the red ‘Donate’ button. Or, you may send a check made payable to “Troop 366” to Boy Scout Troop 366, c/o Kim Burean, 400 Davis Lake Dr., Oxford, MI 48371. All donations are tax deductible.
