Now this is a Company to support....

By
Real Estate Agent with REMAX Realty Team-Cape Coral, FL

The Worcester Wreath Company www.worcesterwreath.com is a company worth supporting.

 

These wreaths (some 5,000) at Arlington National Cementry are donated by The Worcester Wreath Company in Bangor Maine.

The owner, Merrill Worcester, provides the wreaths and trucking expense.  He has done this for over 15 years. 

In 2006, Mr. Worcester started ‘Wreaths Across America' www.wreathsacrossamerica.org which is a project to place memorial wreaths at more than 230 State and National Cemeteries and Veterans monuments across the United States. 

Mr. Worcester.....you are a true American hero! 

You've got my wreath business forever!

Yes . . . Mr. Worcester is an amazing person. I've read elsewhere that he does this even as his area is in a tough economic condition.
