Two local businesses have offered help to those who would like to purchase a wreath for the Wreaths Across America ceremony set for the Gridley-Biggs Cemetery December 16, 2017 at noon.

The Flower Shoppe, at 1295 Highway 99 in Gridley will help those who might not want to order wreaths online by collecting the $15 for each military wreath and registering for the distribution. Call 530-797-9195 for their help.

Anyone wishing to purchase a wreath for a specific grave is asked to provide the marker and lot numbers, otherwise donations are gladly accepted for a wreath to be placed on any one of the 1,400 veterans graves at the local cemetery.

As of last week just 24 wreaths had been purchased so far for our cemetery and there is plenty of time to get your order in.

This ceremony is a very touching time when members of the military visit the local cemetery to place the many wreaths as part of this annual event.

It is just $15 to place a wreath on a grave of someone who gave so much for us.
