Wreaths Across America

Held every year on the second Saturday of December at high noon, the Town of Waxhaw joins thousands of others attending ceremonies and laying wreaths at Arlington National Cemetery and cemeteries around the world on National Wreaths Across America Day. 

Wreaths Across America honors those whose commitment to preserving our freedoms far surpassed their own desire to enjoy it.  Wreaths are placed by gravestones on this day acknowledging the ultimate sacrifice in which each soldier has made. The Town of Waxhaw participates each year by conducting a ceremony and placing wreaths on the gravestones of the 177 veterans in the Southside Cemetery.
