Wreaths Across America (WAA) is proud to announce that its Mobile Education Exhibit (MEE), which has been traveling the country to honor our nations veterans, will make eleven tour stops in California. Starting on April 24, 2021, the WAA MEE will be in California for the first of multiple stops.
“The goal of the Wreaths Across America Mobile Education Exhibit is to bring community together and teach patriotism while remembering the service and sacrifice of our nation’s heroes,” said Karen Worcester, executive director, Wreaths Across America. “However, over the last year, in light of the current health crisis, we feel this exhibit has taken on even more meaning by providing the opportunity for people to safely participate in something that is both educational and inspiring, while supporting and giving back to the communities it visits.”
The MEE achieves this goal by bringing 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 serving as an official ‘welcome home’ station for our nation’s Vietnam Veterans.
It comes to Concord Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday May 11,& 12 & 13, 2021 – The WAA Location Coordinators of Contra Costa County will host the WAA MEE for an open house to honor our nation’s Veterans and active duty military at the City Hall parking lot at 1950 Parkside Dr., Concord, CA. 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
