Welcome to the Town of Ellington

Wreaths Across America 2022

The Ellington Patriotic Committee is looking for sponsors and donations for the Wreaths Across America ceremony that is to take place on December 17th at the Ellington Center Cemetery at noon.

Wreaths Across America’s mission is simple: Remember the fallen, Honor those that serve, and Teach the next generation about the value of freedom.

WAA and its national network of volunteers placed over 2.4 million veterans’ wreaths at over 3,100 locations in all 50 US states, at sea, and abroad. In 2021, here in Ellington, we placed just under 500 wreaths, leaving around 150 Veterans without a remembrance wreath. This year, our goal is to place 650 wreaths. We are hoping there are organizations and people out there to help us meet our goal to ensure no veteran is forgotten.

To donate, please visit www.wreathsacrossamerica.org, click on “Local Sponsorship Group” and input CT0039. This will select the Ellington Patriotic Committee and location CTECCE, Ellington Center Cemetery. Having both codes and placing your order before November 28 will also activate a special “buy 2 get 1 free” offer.

On behalf of the volunteers and military families looking to honor all the veterans laid to rest in Ellington and the Wreaths Across America extended family, we thank you for your consideration.
