Stamford Cemeteries Wreaths Across America
It’s been awhile… but we would like to give some updates about our goal to lay wreaths at all the veterans’ graves in the Stamford Cemeteries.
To date we have 15 wreaths sponsored out of our total goal of 92. We are 16% to goal!
We applied for grant money from multiple places and have not heard from most, but we did receive some good news from MountainOne. We will receive a grant for $250.00! That is 25 wreaths which will really help us make strides towards our goal. We do not have any fundraisers scheduled but are hoping that the rest of the wreaths will come from individual sponsorships.
To sponsor a wreath (or 2) or to volunteer to be involved with this effort please go to our website
If you prefer to donate with a sponsorship form we have them at both the Town Office and the library.

If anyone is interested (and we hope a lot of you will be) we would like to ‘Remember the fallen’ as well as ‘Honoring those who serve’ by posting small entries on our facebook page.
Honoring those who serve –
Do you have someone in your family that is currently serving that we could highlight? A short write-up with perhaps a picture telling us a little something about them.
Remembering the fallen –
Do you have a veteran buried at Houghton or Millard cemeteries that we could remember with a post? A short write-up with their picture would also be wonderful.
Please send any entries to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will post them for you.
