Yulee, FL Thursday, October 28, 2021 — Wreaths Across America (WAA) is proud to announce a local stop in Yulee, FL  for the WAA Mobile Education Exhibit (MEE) national tour. The MEE started its tour at the WAA Headquarters in Maine and will be in the area Thursday, October 28, 2021 for a scheduled event that is both free and open to the public. The event will take place at Wildlight located behind the Red Story Center Building, 123 Tinker Street, Yulee from 2:00 to 4:00 PM.

The MEE goal is to bring the local community, veterans, active-duty military and their families together through interactive exhibits, short films, and shared stories. The exhibit serves as a mobile museum, educating visitors about the service and sacrifice of our nation’s heroes as well as to serve as an official ‘welcome home’ station for our nation’s Vietnam Veterans.

The public tours for the MEE are free and open to the public with social distancing, sanitation and COVID-19 safety procedures in place to protect the health of all visitors in accordance with the CDCs recommendation for large gatherings stemming from concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. Members of the media, dignitaries, veterans and other interested groups are urged to come, ask questions, share stories and experience this one-of-a-kind exhibit.

You can sponsor a veteran’s wreath anytime for $15 at www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/FL0482. Each sponsorship goes toward a live, balsam wreath that will be placed on the headstone of an American hero locally at Jacksonville National Cemetery. We endeavor to honor all veterans laid to rest at noon on Saturday, December 18, 2021, as part of National Wreaths across America Day.
