The City of Covington announces that the Wharton Chapter of the national society Daughters of the American Revolution has joined with the Wreaths Across America organization to raise funds to honor the military service members buried in Covington Cemetery No. 1, located at 608 N. Columbia Street in downtown Covington, Louisiana.
On Saturday, December 14, beginning at 11:00 AM, the Wharton Chapter, guests and members of the community will gather to honor those men and women who have so honorably served our country. As part of the ceremony, wreaths made from fresh Maine balsam will be placed on the final resting places of every veteran buried within the cemetery so that their names and their service is never forgotten.
Please visit their table at the Farmers Market on October 19, November 9, and November 23, 2019.
