Wreaths Across America Exhibit coming to Wilsonville
Wreaths Across America is bringing its Mobile Education Exhibit to the Korean War Memorial at Town Center Park in Wilsonville from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Aug. 14.
The event, which is free and open to the public, is designed to bring veterans, active-duty military and their families together. The program includes shared stories, interactive exhibits and short films.
The exhibit features a 24-person screening room that displays various aspects of the wreath organization's mission. It also includes three interactive computers showcasing locations, trucking supports and general wreath sponsorship questions.
According to the organization's website, the exhibit's goal is to "bring local communities and our military together with education, stories and interactive connections," and the purpose is not only to teach the next generation about service and sacrifice, but to "share stories of patriotism and love of country to communities around the United States."
Visitors can take a tour and speak with representatives and volunteers about the organization's work.
