The boys’ basketball team from Christian Heritage Academy, together with some of their families and Coach & Mrs. Cook, participated in the National Wreaths Across America Day on December 19, 2020.
The group of 27 met at the Lake Zurich (IL) Cemetery to lay wreaths at 35 gravestones in honor of veterans from the Revolutionary War to present day conflicts. They also offered prayer for these fallen heroes and the families that were affected by their sacrifice.
The mission of Wreaths Across America is to remember our fallen U.S. veterans, honor those who serve, and teach about the value of freedom. The program coordinates wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as at more than 2,100 additional locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea, and abroad. It was an honor for CHA to be a part of this effort.
