Minot Prepared for Veterans Remembrance

Written by: Civil Air Patrol / U.S. Air Force Auxiliary

Volunteers from community organizations, including local Civil Air Patrol, teamed up on Saturday to prepare for December’s annual Wreaths Across America remembrance for veterans. Together, they staked in 650 wreath holders in Section 16, Rosehill Memorial Park, that will later hold wreaths, honoring veterans remembered there. On December 16, the group meets again for the ceremony at 11 am and to place 1,013 wreaths on the holders and upright headstones.


Minot’s longtime Wreaths Across America director, Richard Reur, began training his replacement, Holly Rosel, to ensure the event continues smoothly each coming year. “It’s so encouraging to see this many volunteers out to help,” said Rosel. “Last I checked there were only about 600 wreaths sponsored, so we have a ways to go still. Let people know they can go to the website to sponsor a wreath.”


Those interested in sponsoring a wreath or volunteering for the event in December can go to the Wreaths Across America website and search for Rosehill Memorial Park or there is a direct link at the bottom of Minot’s CAP website, ND021.CAP.GOV. Sponsorships of $17 made through November 17th will provide a wreath to be placed this December.
