With community support, a hand-crafted wreath made of all-American balsam will be placed on the headstones of our local veterans. Wreaths Across AmericaTM (WAA) is a national nonprofit organization founded in 2007.


This year the Allenton American Legion would like to have wreaths at every cemetery in the Slinger and Allenton area for a total of 18 cemeteries. The total number of wreaths they wish to procure is 820 this year. This number will allow those who wish to purchase wreath[s] for other cemeteries may do so as well.
