CHRISTMAS TREE AT THE WALL
Monday, December 17, 2012 ~ 10:00 a.m.
Vietnam Veterans Memorial
Please help the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund
Honor our nation’s veterans and their families
By having your students make Christmas ornaments
For those who served and sacrificed during the Vietnam War
And, for those currently serving overseas.
A few days before Christmas each year, the Memorial Fund staff and volunteers decorate a Christmas Tree at the apex of The Wall. The tree is decorated with thousands of cards sent to the Memorial Fund each December in honor of all America’s service members – past and present –and their families. This year’s ceremony will be held on Monday, December 17, 2011 at 10:00 a.m.
We are asking teachers and their students to help us decorate the Christmas Tree at The Wall by making ornaments with messages for our veterans and active-duty service members.
In order to have your classes’ ornaments placed at The Wall, please send the cards to 2600 Virginia Avenue, Suite 104, Washington, DC 20037 to be received no later than Friday, December 14.
You, your students and their families also are invited to present the ornaments, in person, at the Christmas Tree at The Wall ceremony. If your class is interested in participating, please contact VVMF at 202.393.0090 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
