On December 10, 2011, the Grand Lodge of the District of Columbia will partner with Wreaths Across America
to place nearly 100,000 wreaths on the graves at Arlington National Cemetery. We need as many volunteers as possible to assist in this effort, so please invite your family, friends, and Brethren to attend.
All volunteers should arrive at the cemetery between 8-8:30 am to receive a briefing address. The briefing will contain information regarding some of the basic guidelines to follow as far as the cemetery is concerned. Volunteers will then be instructed to go to the trucks to get wreaths for placement in assigned cemetery sections. The Wreaths Across America volunteer event does not have a dress code; however, participants should dress warmly, keeping in mind the spirit of Arlington’s dignified atmosphere.
Please feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org
for additional information. So we may have an accurate count of volunteers, please take a moment to sign up at http://bit.ly/GLDC-WreathLaying
