Wreaths Across America
Honoring our Veterans
Rotary of Toms River, in partnership with the Fallen Saints Motorcycle Club of Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, has raised thousands of dollars for the purchase of wreaths and volunteered annually to help place them on the graves of veterans resting in Riverside Cemetery.
We are proud to be a part of many service groups across the United States who placed thousands of wreaths each December. Many graves in New Jersey go back as far as the Revolutionary War.
The tradition of Wreaths Across America was started in 1992 when a Maine holiday wreath maker, Morrill Worcester wanted to put surplus holiday garland to good use. He arranged for them to be placed at Arlington National Cemetery. The rest is history.  We will never forget our veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice in giving their lives for our freedom.
