If you have ever visited Maine in the fall of the year, you know the colorful foliage is unsurpassed in beauty. A consistent evergreen emerges from the vibrant red and yellow canopy. That evergreen is the rugged balsam fir trees in Downeast Maine that will soon give some of their limbs during the tipping process to pay tribute to our fallen in the form of veterans remembrance wreaths.

Many of these balsam fir trees have been selected and tagged as family remembrance trees as part of the Wreaths Across America Stem to Stone Tree Tagging program and our second annual "Hero Hay Ride" is coming right up!

Saturday, October 15, 2016, you can tour the WAA Museum in Columbia Falls, tip land memorials, and "tag" a family tree with your hero's replica dog tags. Tips from these special trees are made into veterans remembrance wreaths you sponsor to be placed across the nation on the headstones of our fallen in December.

"They Stood to Serve. We Stand to Support."

To RSVP for the Hero Hay Ride, please contact Lil at lil@wreathsacrossamerica.org or (207)-618-5321.

To request a dog tag for the event, please fill out this form by Friday, October 14, 2016.
