Wreaths Across America & Group Walk Jefferson Barracks YRE on December 16, 2023

The view after the wreaths are placed on the graves.

The Illinois Trekkers invite you to join in wreath-laying at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery on Saturday, December 16. We will register at Walgreen’s, 2700 Telegraph Road, Lemay (St. Louis) at 9:45 am and then drive to the JB Park trailhead parking lot. We will walk from the trailhead to JBNC to meet up with other volunteers who are participating in Wreaths Across America. After placing the wreaths, we plan to attend the WAA ceremony at the cemetery flagpole. Although this is intended to be a group event, individuals may choose to participate in any portion of the morning’s event.
