Simply Fantastic Way To Honor Our Veterans This Christmas in Toms River, NJ
This Saturday, December 18th it's National Wreaths Across America Day and folks in the Ocean County community will come together in Toms River to honor our Veterans at Christmas.
There are approximately 1,600 Veterans laid to rest in St. Joseph's Cemetery in Toms River. This year once again Toms River is an official Wreaths Across America location, honoring area Veterans.
The goal once again this year is to place a Christmas Wreath at every Veterans grave, provided by the caring folks in the community who sponsor wreaths directly from Wreaths Across America
I sat down with Father Scott from St. Joseph's Church to discuss this amazing program coming to Toms River on Saturday....
The event is Saturday, December 18th at Noon at St. Joseph's Cemetery in Toms River. We will have pictures from this year's event to share with you this weekend be sure to check our social media @927wobm
Thanks to our friends at St. Joseph's RC Church and Donovan Catholic for making this year's event possible once again and I look forward to seeing everyone this Saturday in Toms River. By the way, you may wanna bring an umbrella because some rain is possible.
