Check out our 2nd Annual “Wreaths Across America” joint event with The Pillow MOM here in Oak Lawn, IL. This event is open to the public and ALL are welcome. This is a family event and a wonderful opportunity to teach our youngest American Patriots about what Freedom means. We will gather first at the Oak Lawn First Responders’ Memorial. This Memorial is a tribute to all whom perished on 911, twelve years ago. Oak Lawn, IL has the largest tonnage of Steel from the Twin Towers, brought here from Ground Zero. This has been created into a National Monument of Monumental proportions. You will want to come and view this world class sculpture that was born out of a tragic page in our National History. Two spires that emulate the Twin Towers that once stood as the World Trade Centers, in NY stand in Tribute to all whom perished that fateful day.
We will then move to the Oak Lawn Veterans Memorial adjacent to the OL Public Library on 9427 Raymond Ave, Oak Lawn, IL 60453. Following our ceremony to Pause, Reflect and Remember our Veterans, we will enter our O.L. Children’s Museum. Here we will share pictures with the children to color for their lesson on Patriotism. Sharing and showing our Gratitude to assemble and Peacefully Pray for our Nation and the Future!
We are hoping that yet again, our OL Richards High School JROTC will be present to participate. Mr Larry Buttimer our steadfast professional Bugler from the National Organization “Bugles Across America” has committed to Volunteer his talents yet again to preform Taps and some Christmas Carols. If you would like to learn more about LIVE Buglers for your Veteran’s Memorial Service or other Patriotic Event?
