Remember. Honor. Teach.

wreathsRiverton City is proud to sponsor the Wreaths Across America program at Riverton City Cemetery to honor and remember veterans buried there. Each year, wreaths sponsored by community members are laid at the graves of veterans prior to Christmas on Wreaths Across America Day following a special ceremony. The ceremony happens simultaneously with other ceremonies at participating cemeteries across the country. It is our goal to have a wreath for EVERY veteran buried in the cemetery.
 
Wreath-Laying Ceremony
The wreath-laying ceremony is held on Wreaths Across America Day each year on the third Saturday in December. A short program will be held and then those present will remember and honor veterans by placing wreaths on the graves of the 370 known veterans buried in the cemetery. The event provides an excellent opportunity to teach children the significance of veterans. All are welcome to attend!

Sponsor a Wreath
Riverton residents and neighbors are encouraged to sponsor a $17 wreath each year for a veteran buried in the Riverton City Cemetery. Wreaths are placed at veteran's graves at a wreath-laying ceremony each year in December. Our goal is to place a wreath at EVERY veteran's grave. We can only meet that goal with your support. For every 2 wreaths sold by Riverton City, Wreaths Across America will donate 1 additional wreath to our count! Click below to sponsor a wreath!
