|Bakersfield National Cemetery Support Committee|
|The Bakersfield National Cemetery Support Committee works closely with The Bakersfield Breakfast Rotary Club in support of the Wreaths Across America program. |
Each year Wreaths Across America, a 501(c)3 organization works to place a wreath on the gravesites of our veterans laid to rest in our National Cemeteries. The Breakfast Rotary Club is the officially designated organization charged with that task for our cemetery. They strive to have 100% coverage, and have been successful raising the funds to do so to date. We have roughly 4,000 persons entomed as of June, 2015. However, since the number of graves increases at the rate of approximately 60 - 80 per month this becomes and increasingly greater challenge each year.
Wreaths cost $15 each, thus the target for the effort this year is in the area of $60,000.00. You can participate in this endeavor by clicking here to purchase one or more wreaths. They will be delivered to the cemetery the week of December 8th. The Wreath-Laying ceremony will take place on Saturday, December 12, 2015, which we strongly encourage you to attend.
