Snyder ISD students will pay tribute to our veterans for the second year in a row as Wreaths Across America returns to Snyder this Friday.  

In addition to wreaths, the community is honoring veterans with US flags on their graves. This  Tuesday, Glen Burns stopped by the Snyder High School welding shop to pick up another order of flag holders.  The welding students began creating the veteran graveside flag holders last year, and the orders keep coming in as awareness of the program grows.

At 9:00 am,  Friday, December 15th, Snyder Elementary students will line El Paso Ave. to watch the parade of first responders lead the semi-truck carrying the wreaths into Snyder. The parade will travel from US Hwy 180 to El Paso Ave. Mitch Hall Chevrolet has donated American flags for the students to wave along the route.

The wreaths will make a temporary stop to be unloaded with the assistance of Snyder High School students and other volunteers.  Next, they will be taken to Hillside Memorial Gardens, where they can be picked up between 1 pm-6 pm.  Relatives may place the wreaths on their loved ones' graves, and volunteers will put them on the remainder of the veterans’ graves.

We want to thank Jean and Glenn Burns, and the DAR for providing Snyder ISD students this special opportunity to remember our veterans during the holiday season and throughout the year.
