The members of Signal Hill, NSDAR of Barrington, invite the local community to participate in Wreaths Across America Day to honor Veterans buried in Evergreen Cemetery on Saturday, December 17, 2022. National Wreaths Across America Day was begun to Remember the fallen, Honor their Service, and Teach children the cost of Freedom.

A brief memorial service will be held on Saturday, December 17, 2022, at Evergreen Cemetery, 610 South Dundee Avenue in Barrington, beginning at noon. Afterward, attendee volunteers will be guided to place wreaths on those graves identified as Veterans, ranging from the Civil War to present day service. The event will be held rain, snow, or shine, until all Veterans have been honored. State and local COVID protocols will be observed on that date, if necessary.

 

Donations are not required to participate in the laying of wreaths; if you wish to participate in the event, please register at www.WreathsAcrossAmerica.org/ILEGCA.

Signal Hill Chapter, NSDAR has been able to provide the wreaths through solicitation of group and individual sponsors. Nearly 770 Veterans' graves have now been identified at Evergreen, and we have nearly reached our goal. If you are so inclined, you may contribute to this remembrance by visiting www.WreathsAcrossAmerica.org/ILEGCA for donation guidance. With your generosity, any donations exceeding this year's goal will carry over to 2023, so your gift will always benefit this annual remembrance at Evergreen Cemetery.

The Signal Hill Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, raises funds throughout the year and distributes to 501 (c) (3) organizations, whose missions support DAR's mission of education, historic preservation, patriotism, conservation, and Native American issues.
