The Historical Activities Committee of the National Society of the Colonial Dames of America in DC is now taking purchase orders for their Holiday Fraser Fir Wreath Sale. Proceeds from wreath sales will help to financially support the Mount Zion and Female Union Band Society Cemeteries, Eagle Eye’s partner in the Headstones and History course.
You may sponsor 14” wreaths to be placed at gravesites in the burial grounds to commemorate the cemeteries for the holidays (details of the wreath placement activity will be shared once they are confirmed).
Additionally, you may purchase 26” diameter wreaths (useful for exterior doors and entryways) and smaller 14” wreaths (for smaller doors, windows, and indoor decorating).
Wreaths purchased for personal use will be available for pick-up on Wednesday, December 8 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Dumbarton House. An alternate pick-up is scheduled Thursday, December 9 through Saturday, December 11, between 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m., at the home of Betsy Nottingham in Washington, D.C.
