This is a notice regarding the Wreath Project at the Sacramento Valley National Cemetery, for anyone who is interested--
We'd like to wish you all a very Happy New Year and thank you again, for whatever your contribution may have been leading to the success of the 2017 Wreath Project. Whether you made cash donations, supported any of our fundraising events or supported other groups who held fundraisers for the Wreath Project's benefit, or shared our emails--it all combined to successfully having a wreath for each of the Fallen resting at Sacramento Valley National Cemetery this Christmas. Thanks to the thousands of volunteers who braved that cold, windy day to help place the wreaths too. A huge thank you to Buckeye Express and Button Transportation for their generosity every year in getting these wreaths to us and to Ramos Oil for supplying the fuel for all those trucks--we could not do this project without these valued partners! short chiffon homecoming dress with lace racerback
**Volunteers needed Saturday, January 13th:
Volunteers are invited to help dispose of the wreaths this Saturday, Jan 13th, starting at 7:30 AM. We'll need pick-up trucks to haul wreaths to the dumpsters (on-site) and last year many people brought dowels/poles to put the wreaths on and worked in pairs, making quick work of this job! No sign-up necessary; just come--all ages welcome! Look for volunteers directing you to parking areas--we need to keep the roads clear for the pick-ups helping to haul wreaths to dumpsters--please do not stop just inside the front gate. This usually takes one to two hours--be sure to dress warmly and you might want to bring gloves! NOTE: If you want to keep your wreath, it must be removed before Saturday.
**Save these 2018 dates: We have three of our own fundraising events coming up this year and we hope you can attend one or more--
**Saturday, March 3, 2018: Third annual " RememberAVet.net Evening at Park Winters" dinner and auction. This event has sold out quickly in prior years and is first-come, first-serve for ticket orders. We also have sponsorship opportunities available and will be sending out more information very soon about this special evening!
**Friday, June 1, 2018: There will be a second annual RememberAVet.net Golf Tournament at the Yolo Fliers Club in Woodland! Last year's tournament was a huge success...and a lot of fun. Golfers, please gather your foursomes and be ready!
**Saturday, September 1, 2018: (Labor Day weekend) is the date for the tenth annual "Country In The Hills Fundraiser" at the beautiful Yin Ranch in Vacaville. Dinner, dancing, auctions and more!!
