We are proud to announce that the Friends of the Fishkill Supply Depot will celebrate "National Wreaths Across
America Day" on December 13, 2014, to honor the Revolutionary War soldier's who died at Fishkill. All are
encouraged to meet at the Van Wyck Homestead, 504 Route 9, Fishkill NY 12524 at or before 11:30 am to be
present for the ceremony at 12 o'clock noon.
With overwhelming support from friends like you, last year we were recongized by WAA with a
"Certificate of Appreciation" for the 180+ wreaths sold in support of our efforts to
save the burial ground.
This year it's easier that ever to order a wreath. Michael Zaicek (FOFSD active volunteer) has developed our very
own "Wreaths Across America" webpage. Follow the link WAA
in Fishkill then click on the red
box in the right-hand menu to order your wreath today. Five dollars of every $15 wreath purchase is
deposited directly to the burial ground fund (a special account where 100% of all money donated goes
directly toward efforts to save the burial ground).
New this year, order your wreath(s) by check or money order instead of making an online purchase.
Download our easy-to-use wreath order form, fill in your information and send
to Wreaths Across America, PO Box 249, Columbia Falls, ME 04623. On the order form, highlighted in yellow is our
special code (NY0019p). Please make sure to use this code if ordering by phone. The Wreaths Across America
phone numbers are (877) 385-9504 or (207) 470-0967.
