The Byron Delta Lions Club will be laying remembrance wreaths on the graves of fallen military members on Dec. 18.

Wreaths to be placed on graves of fallen veterans as part of national observance.

The Byron Delta Lions Club in collaboration with Union Cemetery will honor veterans by laying remembrance wreaths on the graves of the country’s fallen heroes on Dec. 18 at 9 a.m.

The event is in association with Wreaths Across America, a nonprofit organization best known for placing veterans’ wreaths on the headstones of our nation’s fallen at Arlington National Cemetery. The organization places more than 1.7 million sponsored wreaths at 2557 participating locations nationwide.

Those wanting to sponsor wreaths through the Byron Delta Lions Club can do so for $15 at https://www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/CA0639. Each sponsorship goes toward a fresh balsam veterans’ wreath that will be placed on the headstone of an American hero to honor all veterans laid to rest at Union Cemetery in Brentwood during the December event.
