A special thanks to the Barceloux-Tibessart Foundation for the grant money that was given to the Wreaths Across America, Orland Area, that will provide new flags to fly on each of the veterans’ graves.

Many flags have been used for so many years that they need to be replaced.

To each and everyone that participates in the ceremony each year, the Glenn County Sheriff’s Office; Kristen Williams Baugher, who graciously sings our National Anthem; the Orland High School band that plays the service hymns as the wreaths are placed at the flagpoles; Nancy Villalobolos, who prepares the ceremonial wreaths; the Orland Volunteer Fire Department that each year helps unload the wreaths and lays the wreaths at the veteran section after the ceremony; Doug and Jane Richardson; John McDermott, who helps in any and every way needed each year.

A big thanks to all those who laid the wreaths each year, without you, it wouldn’t be a successful project. 

Those volunteers that raised the service flags and laid the wreaths, to each and everyone, a huge thank you.
