Horton Wreath Society supporting:
Albert G. Horton Jr. Memorial Veterans Cemetery
5310 Milners Road, Suffolk, VA 23434

Volunteer Link

Local and other interested friends continue to join together each year to honor our Veterans by placing a wreath at each grave site and columbarium row.
With your support, we hope to continue this in the coming years.
Approximately 12,700 wreaths will be placed at the cemetery this year (2022).
We will be reverting back to utilizing buses to transport volunteers from Kings Fork High School (351 Kings Fork Rd. Suffolk VA 23434) to the cemetery on 17 December 2022 starting at 7:00 AM.

There will be no parking on the cemetery grounds unless previously authorized.

Registered Red Flag families will be able to lay their wreaths starting on
Friday, December 16, 2022 (9:00 AM to 4:00 PM) and Saturday, immediately following the ceremony.

DUE TO UNFORSEEN CIRCUMSTANCES, THANK YOU CARDS FOR DONATIONS WILL NOT BE DELIVERED THIS YEAR.

The official ceremony starts at 9:30 at the Committal Shelter. All are invited to come to the Committal Shelter as you arrive.  Seating will be limited.  there will be two bleachers and additional chairs available under the shelter. Some participants may be required to stand.  Those who have any disabilities may access the cemetery via the back gate, there will be golf carts available for transportation to and from the event.  Volunteers who plan to lay wreaths only should take note of the ceremony times because the trucks will not be opened until the official ceremony is completed (approximately 1130).  There will be coffee, water and light treats staged at the cemetery administration building.

 

We will be using the Sign-up Genius system for following purposes.  If you have a family member or loved one interred at the cemetery and you do not wish a wreath be placed on the grave site by others, please register and a Red Flag will be placed at each grave site to identify no wreath placement except by the family.

Volunteers are needed to assist on the December 15th & 16th, 2022, unloading and re-loading our trucks in preparation for our event. This two day Working Party will be at the National Guard Armory, 2761 Godwin Blvd, Suffolk VA.  Friday, December 16th, 2022, is opened to all Red Flag families to be able to place wreaths between the hours of 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM so, please, use our Sign-up Genius link below (volunteer Link).

New Item, we are establishing the January wreath clean up volunteer list on our Sign-up Genius for January 12th & 13th, 2022, to assist in picking up and disposing of the wreaths from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Please come out and help with this last piece of work if you have the time.
