Wreaths Across America Program

The Main Wall

On December 13, 2014, the Civil Air Patrol sponsored the Wreaths Across America Program at the Wisconsin Korean War Veteran's Memorial in the Village of Plover.  The program began at 10:45am.  The Wreaths Across America Program encourages American citizens to remember and honour our veterans and teach our children a better understanding of the importance of Veterans in America's history.  The Village Board wished to thank the Wreaths Across America Program and the Civil Air patrol for sponsoring the program in Portage County! Below are a few photos from the event this year:
