Wreaths Across America Mobile Education Exhibit

Sunday, June 4, 2023


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

 Wreaths Across America’s Mobile Education Exhibit will visit Collinsville to Honor Veterans and Supporters

 

Collinsville, Oklahoma, 2023 — Wreaths Across America (WAA) is the organization most recognized for placing over 2.7 million veterans’ wreaths at over 3700 locations nationally and abroad on National Wreaths Across America Day. However, the work to recognize our nation’s veterans, military families, active duty servicemembers is a yearlong effort. WAA is proud to announce that as part of its yearlong mission to Remember the fallen, Honor those that serve and their families, and Teach the next generation the value of freedom, its Mobile Education Exhibit (MEE) will make a stop in Collinsville on 6/4/23 to share this mission with the community. 

 

The stop will take place at:

Veterans Community Center - 903 W. Main Street, Collinsville, Oklahoma on 6/4/23 from 12:00PM to 6:00PM 

 

 

Collinsville, Oklahoma, 2023 — The City of Collinsville are proud to announce a local stop for the WAA Mobile Education Exhibit national tour. The MEE will be free and open to the public locally at Veterans Community Center - 903 W. Main Street, Collinsville, Oklahoma on 6/4/23 from 12:00PM to 6:00PM. 

 

“The mission of Wreaths Across America is to Remember the fallen, Honor those who have served and their families, and teach the next generation the value of freedom,” said Karen Worcester, Executive Director. “The Mobile Education Exhibit provides the unique opportunity for communities to come together and share the stories of those who served and sacrificed. Through our partnership with the United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration, the Exhibit also serves as an official ‘Welcome Home’ location for our nation’s Vietnam Veterans.”

 

The MEE achieves this goal by bringing the local community, veterans, active-duty military and their families together through interactive exhibits, short films, and shared stories. The exhibit serves as a mobile museum, educating visitors about the service and sacrifice of our nation’s heroes as well as serving as an official ‘welcome home’ station for our nation’s Vietnam Veterans.

 

When the MEE pulls into the area, all veterans, active-duty military, their families, and the local community members are invited and encouraged to visit, take a tour, and speak with WAA representatives and volunteers. They can also share more about the national nonprofit, and the work its volunteers do to support our heroes and their communities year-round. Members of the media,

dignitaries, veterans, and other interested groups are urged to come, ask questions, share stories, and experience this one-of-a-kind exhibit.

 

You can sponsor a veteran’s wreath anytime to support the local WAA program at Collinsville for $17 at https://www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/pages/160390. Each sponsorship goes toward a live, balsam wreath that will be placed on the headstone of an American hero as we endeavor to honor all veterans laid to rest on Saturday, December 16, 2023, as part of National Wreaths Across America Day.
