REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children the value of Freedom.


Each December at Wyuka Cemetery we honor our deceased soldiers that are buried in the three military circles with a fresh evergreen wreath with a traditional hand tied red bow placed on their headstone.

This years ceremony is December 18th starting at 11 a.m. We invite the public to join us for a short program. Please use the Vine Street entrance to watch the program and afterwards, help us to lay the wreaths.
