Ashley Furniture volunteers delivered live Wreaths from Worcester, Maine for the 9th Annual Wreaths Across America program at the Bogalusa Cemetery and Duffy Historic Cemetery.
Ashley Furniture owner and volunteer drivers truly embody the 2019 National Wreaths Across America theme, "Everybody Plays A Part." God Bless Wreaths Across America and all of its volunteers - from the ones who assemble the "live" wreaths in Worcester, Maine to the ones who package them, and the volunteer companies that ship them with their trucking lines, and the volunteers who place them at cemeteries in cities and small rural communities like Bogalusa around the country, at Arlington National and cemeteries around the world. In the words of the Lee Greenwood song, "I am proud to be an American."
Bogalusa Wreaths Across America event is scheduled for 11:00 AM CST, Saturday, December 14, 2019 (in cooperation with the 12:00 Noon EST at Arlington National) at Bogalusa Cemetery with local partners BHS JROTC, DAV, City of Bogalusa, Washington Parish NAACP and Bogalusa AARP and Washington Men's Club.
