Local DAR chapter supporting Wreaths Across America

Northampton’s Betty Allen Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) has chosen to support Wreaths Across America, a national program whose mission is to remember fallen veterans, honor those who have served and teach the next generation the value of freedom.

Through Wreaths Across America’s Group Sponsorship Program, the Betty Allen Chapter is asking community members to sponsor balsam wreaths that will then be placed at the Massachusetts Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Agawam on National Wreaths Across America Day, to be celebrated Saturday, Dec. 17. To sponsor a wreath, visit bit.ly/3gXcppD.

“We are forever grateful to all the volunteers and groups who dedicate their time and effort nationwide to fulfilling this yearlong mission,” Karen Worcester, executive director of Wreaths Across America, said in a statement. “These individuals and their communities know the value of remembering the fallen, honoring those who currently serve and teaching the next generation about the sacrifices made for our freedom every day, and with their continued support, Wreaths Across America continues to grow.”
