Sons of the American Revolution

Proclamation by the President General

December 13, 2014

Whereas: The Wreaths Across America story began over fifteen years ago when Morrill and Karen Worcester of the Worcester Wreath Company from Harrington, Maine began a tradition of placing wreaths on the headstones of our nation’s fallen heroes at Arlington National Cemetery during the holidays; and

Whereas: Morrill Worcester was awarded the Gold Good Citizenship Medal by the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution for his patriotic service; and

Whereas: The mission of Wreaths Across America is to remember the fallen, honor those who serve and teach our children the value of freedom; and

Whereas: The wreath-laying ceremonies will be held concurrently across America on Saturday, December 13, 2014; and

Whereas: The National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution has endorsed and supports the Wreaths Across America program, and plans to participate in many of the 285 locations where ceremonies will be conducted on December 13th.

Therefore be it Further Resolved: That the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution supports the Wreaths Across America program and encourages all State Societies and Chapters to adopt and participate in this important patriotic program.

God bless the United States of America,

Lindsey Cook Brock, President General
