Volunteer for Wreath Pick-up 1/16/2021
Security: Access to the base on January 16, 2021 will be available to DoD ID holders and those riding with them. Others with MWR base passes will be admitted, but all car riders must have similar ID – Driver’s license is not enough.
COVID: VA protocol permits only 50 volunteers at a time on each side of the cemetery. Volunteers must register in advance by emailing our Volunteer Coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org) . Masks and gloves must be worn in the cemetery. Volunteer coordinators will help disperse volunteers to preserve social distancing.
Schedule: Pick up of wreaths begins at 8 AM on both the new and old side and continues until completed. Two shifts will be scheduled: 8-10 and 10:30-12:30. First shift must depart promptly at 10am to control numbers in the cemetery.
Handling Wreaths: Please bring pickup trucks to transport the wreaths to dumpsters on both the new side near the administration building and the old side behind Public Works parking. Specific dumpster location will be determined on the day of the event.
Wreath Disposal: Four Dumpsters will be supplied by ECUA at no charge to the cemetery and positioned at points designated by the Cemetery Director. Rather than having 2 disposal locations, 4 locations will be selected to increase social distancing.
