Only two days left, donate to Wreaths Across America
CLARKSVILLE, TN - Wreaths Across America is right around the corner, and, with hundreds still needed, there are only two days left to sponsor wreaths.
National Wreaths Across America Day is held simultaneously across the country in more than 2,700 locations. The local community, veterans, active-duty military, and their families are encouraged to attend and learn more about the organization’s year-long mission to Remember, Honor, and Teach.
This is Riverview’s third year participating in Wreaths Across America. According to Director Angie Sykes, 51 wreaths have been sponsored with 294 still needed for this year’s ceremony.
“Our mission is simple,” said Riverview Cemetery manager Angie Sykes. “To make sure that every single American hero is never forgotten after they give the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Have you sponsored your remembrance wreath yet?”

Riverview Cemetery was established on Feb. 23, 1800, as City Cemetery. It was renamed on June 7, 1927 for its view of the Cumberland River. Today, it’s the oldest known public burial ground in the area and has service members for every American war interred within its grounds.
