Supporting Wreaths Across America honors Nevada County veterans

Wreaths Across America is having a special promotion this month. For every wreath sold by May 31, or postmarked by May 31 if mailed, they will match.

This year’s Wreaths Across America ceremony will be noon, Dec. 15 at St. Patrick’s Cemetery on Rough and Ready Highway. Those wishing to donate can go to and scroll to the bottom of the page to sponsor a wreath at either St. Patrick’s or Greenwood cemeteries.

Another option to donate is to visit the Wreaths Across America-Grass Valley Facebook page, click on Learn More, and scroll to the bottom to donate. Or call Bonnie Magnetti at 530-210-1941, email at or mail a check to 22627 Sunset Ridge Dr. Auburn, CA 95602.

“This year we are concentrating on finding the graves of veterans in the two cemeteries whose headstones do not have any indication of military service, so that they may be honored as well,” Magnetti said.
