Sisters in the Brotherhood Organize Wreath Laying Events for Veterans Across New York State


National Wreaths Across America Day

On Saturday, December 19th, over 60 union carpenters and their families came out to lay wreaths of honor and remembrance on the graves of our country’s fallen veterans. This is an annual statewide volunteer effort that’s coordinated by the Sisters in the Brotherhood at national cemeteries in Binghamton, Syracuse, Eden, Rome, Saratoga, New Paltz, and Long Island.

“In a year unlike any other, we are proud to once again participate in Wreaths Across America Day to show our deep thanks and appreciation for the service and sacrifice of our veterans – many of whom we have lost this year due to the pandemic,” said Nicole Grodner, Carpenters Local 290 Council Representative and New York Chair of the Sisters in the Brotherhood Committee. “It is a privilege to be able to show up for our communities by honoring their loved ones and our local heroes, and we are sincerely grateful to volunteer our time on this special day throughout the country.”
