Wreaths Across America Day Ceremony at Hillside Memorial Park
In 2018, nearly 1.8 million veteran wreaths were placed on headstones at 1,640 participating cemeteries around the country in honor of the service and sacrifices made for our freedoms, with each name said out loud.
This year, National Wreaths Across America Day is Saturday, Dec. 14. In Redlands, the ceremony will begin at 9 a.m. and will take place at Veteran Circle located on the north end of the cemetery within Hillside Memorial Park. The event is free and open to the public.
