Wreaths Across America 2013 (4)

Wreaths Across America

With the end of Stockings for Soldiers Campaign, Peacock Funeral Home is gearing up for our 4th Annual Wreaths Across America Ceremony that will be held at 10:00AM on Saturday, December 13, 2014 at Fairmount Cemetery in the Veteran’s Section. With the support of so many we will be receiving 298 wreaths to be placed at Veteran’s gravesites at Fairmount, Riverside and local cemeteries. Come help us honor our fallen service members. We will have 7 ceremonial wreaths that will be placed to remember all soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines who served. We will gather as a community to honor their sacrifices, and teach our younger generations about the high cost of our freedoms.

Stockings for Soldiers

Peacock Funeral Home has finished our 4th Annual Stockings for Soldiers. This year we shipped 370 stockings to four different people stationed overseas. We have had a huge amount of support from the communities in Southeast, Colorado to help us make it possible to send the gift of Christmas to those who could not be home with their loved ones. We would like to give a special thank-you to the Lamar MOPS group who pulled together to do a total of about 85 stockings as well as numerous other groups, churches and individuals who helped us to fill so many stockings.
