Event Description

Wreaths Across America began at Arlington National Cemetery many years ago.  This is the 3rd year this will be held at Red Oak Grove Cemetery, Tipton, Iowa.  There will be wreaths placed at the headstone of 71 veterans either buried or commemorated at Red Oak.  The event is Saturday, Dec. 16, 2017 at 11:30 am at Red Oak and over 1300 cemeteries across the country including Arlington. Wreaths are $15 each and are purchased with donations from family and or volunteers. The wreaths are placed after a short ceremony in the church.  Public is invited. This tribute is to honor those who so dutifully served to protect our freedom, which is not free.  The National Theme for 2017 is "I'm an American, Yes I Am."
