Due to weather, Fort Gibson National Cemetery has rescheduled a Wreath-Laying event scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 8 to Sunday, Dec. 9 at 2 p.m. The public is invited to attend to help decorate gravesites.

Wreaths for Fallen Heroes, a local non-profit organization that raises funds to purchase artificial wreaths for gravesites at the National Cemetery, has donated 21,000 wreaths.

The cemetery will also host Wreaths Across America, which will place 1,000 natural wreaths on gravesites on Dec. 15 at 11 a.m. The public is also invited to attend to decorate gravesites. 
 
Wreaths Across America is committed to recognizing Veterans, active duty military and their families. Their goal is to remind the public to remember the Veterans, honor their service, and teach children the value of freedom.

The National Cemetery is located at 1423 Cemetery Road in Fort Gibson. For more information, please contact Fort Gibson National Cemetery at 918-478-2334.
