Coudersport Rotary Club was pleased to host Connie Kallerson to their November 15th meeting to speak about Wreaths Across America.  

Connie organizes the event locally to place wreaths on the gravestones of up to 1000+ veteran graves.  
Coudersport Rotary Club was honored to donate $150 to this great cause. 

The deadline to donate online is November 29th and the Wreath Laying Ceremony will be December 18th.

How much of the money goes to the private company that has exclusive rights for providing the wreaths? They have a pretty sweet gig going. Google Wreaths Across America articles that expose these practices. And please know that my husband and I are very appreciative and respectful of our veterans!!!!! We just don't like to see their memories being used by a private company. I'm pretty sure our wonderful local volunteers and donors have no idea what this organization is really all about. Why not have these wreaths made and purchased locally?

Gosh 8:11AM not sure what you have read but I have worked with WAA when it first started in Coudersport. So the patronage to sponsor a wreath is $15. $5 is returned to the organization that you supported . Now I was President of the American Legion Auxiliary Unit 192. The monies we got returned to the group were either reinvested into the program or used for other ways to support the Veterans. They are beautifully created fresh wreaths with a bow on them. I would challenge you to find basically a evergreen wreath for $10. Have you drove around and looked at the cemeteries that are all decorated for the Christmas season? I myself admire that Connie Kallerson brought the project to our area. Thank you to all that choose to sponsor this worthwhile project..

Not all Vets want a wreath on their grave this group should have to receive permission from the family before they place anything on another person grave!!
