Forest Lawn Wreath Drive

BNPA will be partnering with Forest Lawn Cemetery to support their wreath campaign for the 2017 holiday season.  There are 300 soldier's graves in Forest Lawn, who no longer have a living relative to honor them.  Forest Lawn will place a wreath at each gravesite in December.  To support this cause, BNPA will hold a 50/50 raffle at each meeting to help raise funds to purchase the wreaths.
