The Blue Star Mothers of New Hampshire are again sponsoring the placing of wreaths on graves on Saturday, December 15, 2018 starting at 10:30am.
Instead of designating specific sections, this year wreaths will be placed approximately every third headstone so that the whole cemetery will have wreaths displayed. To ensure your loved one's headstone receives a wreath, we recommend placing your own wreath before the 15th.
If you want your wreath back, please pick it up before January 2, 2019!
For more information, go to their website https://www.bluestarmothersofnh.org/WreathsBoscawen.html
Immediately following the wreath laying will be the WREATHS ACROSS AMERICA ceremony at NOON in the Cemetery Chapel. This event is hosted by the NH Civil Air Patrol.
If you come earlier to put wreaths on graves, please plan to stay.
Before this ceremony be sure to grab a hot drink or snack in the Maintenance Building.
