Support Wreaths Across America

Red Wing Lions members participated in the 2012 Wreaths Across America. The 2013 ceremony is Dec. 14 and local residents again will travel to Fort Snelling to decorate graves.

The Red Wing Lions Club will again participate in the Wreaths Across America project. The project relies on donations to place holiday wreaths on the graves of service men and women in national cemeteries; in Minnesota, the wreaths go to Fort Snelling National Cemetery.

The Lions Club is joined in the project this year by the Prairie Island Indian Community, Mahn Family Funeral Home, Capital Safety and American Legion Auxiliary No. 54.

Individuals can donate to the project by sending a check payable to the Red Wing Lions Club to John Anderson, Merchants Investment Services, 2835 South Service Drive, Red Wing, MN 55066 or to Fay Wallin, 3125 Leroy Ave., Hastings, MN 55033. Donation deadline is Nov. 15. All funds are used to purchase wreaths.

The ceremony is the second Saturday in December. It is timed to correspond with the event at Arlington National Cemetery.
