Wreaths Across America at Fort Ontario State Historic Site
National non-profit Wreaths Across America (WAA) announced that Fort Ontario State Historic Site will once again be an official location for National Wreaths Across America Day. The event begins at noon on Saturday, Dec. 16 inside the old stone fort in front of the enlisted men’s barracks. A wreath-laying ceremony at the Post Cemetery follows where each veteran’s name will be read out loud.
This marks the sixth anniversary of Fort Ontario’s participation in the national event which includes over 4,000 other locations across the country. The 2023 theme is “Serve and Succeed,” which came about while discussing the significance of last year’s theme (“Find a Way to Serve”) and the need to stress the importance of service and the positive ways it can impact lives.
