Help AHEPA Lay Wreaths on Graves of Greek-American Heroes Buried at Arlington National Cemetery

When: Saturday May 27, 2023
8:00 AM
Where: Arlington National Cemetery
Arlington, VA  22211 

This year, as in years past, the AHEPA Family will continue the traditional wreath laying at the graves of over 500 Hellenes and Phil-Hellenes interred at Arlington National Cemetery. The wreath laying is scheduled on Saturday May 27th, 2023 and will be carried out by the Washington Area AHEPA Family members who have undertaken this solemn task every year since 1949. The wreath laying requires advance assignment of volunteers to specific Cemetery Regions consistent with the number of grave sites identified in each Region. This facilitates the orderly conduct of the preparations as well as the actual wreath laying and should minimize confusion and uncertainty.

We urge all AHEPA, Daughters, Sons and Maids members to participate in this patriotic event. Please e-mail or call Demosthenes Kolaras, AHEPA Chapter 31 Secretary, with the names of volunteers at [email protected]. Volunteers will be assigned based on the names provided by the Chapter Presidents. Individuals who commit to this event, are expected to present themselves and be prepared to conduct the Wreath Laying on Saturday, May 28th. This will prevent last minute volunteers who cause confusion, unnecessary requests for instructions and delay all those who arrive well informed and prepared to carry out the task.

All wreath laying volunteers will meet near the entrance to Arlington Cemetery on Memorial Drive, adjacent to the SEABEE Memorial at 8:00 AM on Saturday, May 27th, 2023. After brief instructions and picture taking, we will proceed to the Cemetery equipped with the wreaths to carry out our solemn task.
