For over ten years, Historic Llano Cemetery has had the honor of hosting Wreaths Across America in the Texas Panhandle. Along with the Tigershark Composite Squadron and the Civil Air Patrol, Volleys For Veterans, The Texas Panhandle War Memorial, and many other Veterans organizations, Llano Cemetery supports the mission to REMEMBER, HONOR and TEACH. We invite you to join us in this mission by participating in many ways.
First, purchase a Wreath to lay on one of the 7,000+ Veteran’s gravesites at Llano Cemetery.
Second, volunteer to Escort and Welcome the Wreaths Across America truck, driver, and wreaths on Friday, December 17, 2020 (Exact time to be announced later).
Third, attend the Wreaths Across America Ceremony, Saturday, December 19, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. in Llano Cemetery; then stay and volunteer to place Wreaths upon the Veteran’s gravesites.
