Our mission is to secure donations to purchase boughs, ensuring that each grave site at the Sacramento Valley National Cemetery
is recognized and honored during the holiday season.
We are also concentrating on raising awareness of this project and encouraging other civic groups, organizations and individuals to join in this effort each year, for this and other cemeteries.
