On National Wreaths Across America Day (Saturday, December 16th), the Veterans Club of Local 3 volunteered to lay wreaths at the eternal resting places of military veterans in Cypress Hills National Cemetery in Brooklyn. Last year, Wreaths Across America placed 2.7 million wreaths at over 3,700 locations nationwide and abroad. The second day of this two-part tradition is Saturday, January 20th, when volunteers from Local 3 and the community will go retrieve this year’s wreaths. All are welcome to participate.
As we celebrate the holidays and enter the new year, please remember those who came before us and made the sacrifices to build our union and our country into the greatest in the world.
