CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Mayor Joe Pitts presented a Certificate of Recognition to American Legion Post 7 and its commander, Charles N. “Chuck” Clark, on Friday for the post’s support of honoring deceased veterans interred at the City’s Riverview Cemetery.
City officials and local volunteers honored veterans laid to rest at Riverview Cemetery on Dec. 19 with the placement of balsam wreaths on their graves as part of National Wreaths Across America Day 2020. American Legion Post 7 donated flag holders for the event, during which some 280 graves were adorned with wreaths during the solemn ceremony.
This year’s local Wreaths Across America ceremony will be at noon Saturday, Dec. 18 at Riverview Cemetery. To help make the 2021 ceremony an even bigger success, local organizers and the national Wreaths Across America organization are urging supporters to donate wreaths for the observance.
