Please join us as we celebrate the Wreaths Across America event on December 16 at 12 p.m. at the Waxhaw Southside Cemetery (Directions).

Held every year on the third Saturday of December at noon, the Town of Waxhaw joins thousands of others attending ceremonies and laying wreaths at Arlington National Cemetery and cemeteries around the world on National Wreaths Across America Wreaths Across America honors those whose commitment to preserving our freedoms far surpassed their own desire to enjoy it. Wreaths are placed by gravestones on this day acknowledging the ultimate sacrifice in which each soldier has made. The Town of Waxhaw participates each year by conducting a ceremony and placing wreaths on the gravestones of nearly 200 veterans in the Southside Cemetery.
