REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children the value of Freedom.
Welcome to the Kennewick Chapter DAR's Wreaths Across America Page.
On Saturday December 19th, 2020 at 9:00 am, Kennewick Chapter DAR will be helping Desert Lawn Memorial Park to Remember and Honor our veterans by laying Remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes.
Please help us honor and remember as many fallen heroes as possible by sponsoring remembrance wreaths. In concern for safety during the public health crisis we will not be holding a public ceremony. A small core group of volunteers will be placing the wreaths on the graves of our veterans.
Thank you so much for supporting the Kennewick Chapter DAR and Wreaths Across America!

Ceremony and Volunteer Information
On Saturday December 19th, 2020 at 9:00 am Wreaths Across America will be at Desert Lawn Memorial Park to Remember and Honor our veterans through the laying of Remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes and the act of saying the name of each and every veteran aloud. This event will be closed to the public this year as we are committed to ensuring the safety of our community. We will instead have a small core group of volunteers lay all sponsored veteran wreaths. Thank you for your support and we look forward to having you join us at the full event next year!
