WREATHS ACROSS AMERICA🇺🇸
Join your D.C. Carolina Club, other area alumni groups and hundreds of other volunteers, on Saturday, Dec. 17 at 9 a.m. to lay Christmas wreaths on Arlington National Cemetery’s grave sites. The time-honored tradition began in 1992 and has grown as more and more volunteers step forward to lay wreaths. It is an amazing and unique D.C. experience that you’ll never forget We’ll meet in front of Women’s Memorial.
Wear some Carolina blue, and thick gloves will be helpful. Once you arrive at the Women’s Memorial, look for the Carolina blue. Use the Metro for stops that can access the cemetery including Rosslyn, Pentagon and Pentagon City.
