Join SMPS DC as we support Wreaths Across America Day to reach their goal of placing wreaths on all the veterans graves at Arlington National Cemetery. Every time you help us honor our veterans and active military, you are also honoring their families and preparing a new generation to appreciate our freedoms. Involve your friends and family in a break from the holidays to honor our service men and women, and their families.
Our group will gather at McClellan Arch at 9-9:30am for the Opening Ceremony. Please plan to arrive early and look for the neon yellow SMPS shirts as large crowds are expected. At 10am, we will join the other volunteers for a for a briefing to go over instructions before laying the wreaths.
We are considering organizing a brunch at 11:30am in Arlington/Clarendon for our members and their guests to regroup and network following the event. Please indicate on your registration if you are interested and how many people would be attending. We will reach out to those expressing interest via email with further details.
This event is open to all ages. Please feel free to bring friends and family members to contribute to this great cause.
