The Ride for Wreaths raises money to ensure a wreath is placed on each grave at the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery during the Holiday Season.
Friends of the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery is an organization created to support development of the Cemetery, and provides a holiday wreath at each grave on the Saturday after Thanksgiving every year. This year there will be more than 4,000 wreaths placed at the Cemetery to honor fallen Veterans and their families.
