A graveside wreath laying will commemorate President Franklin Pierce’s 218th birthday in Old North Cemetery in Concord, New Hampshire. The wreath is sent annually from the White House and commemorates the president’s date of birth and contributions serving in the country’s highest office. Members of the New Hampshire National Guard and the Pierce Brigade will lay the wreath, present the colors and a salute. Old North Cemetery is located at 141 North State Street in Concord, NH. A reception will follow at the Pierce Manse.
This ceremony coincides with others across the USA remembering the service of all veterans with a Christmas wreath previously placed at each grave.
Volunteers wishing to assist in the placement of wreaths on veteran’s graves are invited to join the Pierce Brigade on Friday, December 13 at 9:30am in Old North Cemetery, which is located at 141 North State Street in Concord, NH.
