Wreaths Across America

REMEMBER the Fallen
HONOR those who Serve
TEACH our children the value of freedom

The New Melle VFW and VFW Auxiliary is a proud sponsor of Wreaths Across America at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery and other National Cemeteries across the country. We are also involved in placing wreaths at local cemeteries, including veterans buried at Immaculate Heart of Mary cemetery.

New Melle VFW and VFW Auxiliary has made it our mission to honor and remember as many heroes as possible with a remembrance wreath. You can help by sponsoring a wreath, getting your employer involved to sponsor wreaths or raising money in our community or circle of peers to help place a wreath on a loved one’s resting place.

Our parishioners are invited to place a wreath on the grave of their loved one who is a veteran. Wreaths cost $15, a portion of which goes towards care packages for active military members serving overseas. Please complete and return the information below by December 6. Orders will then be forwarded to VFW. Wreaths will be delivered to IHM on December 18.

If you would like to sponsor and place a wreath for a loved one buried in another cemetery, please use the form below.
