TEXAS–Wreaths Across America (WAA) is proud to announce that its Mobile Education Exhibit (MEE) tour will make nine stops in Texas in the month of March.
“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 Executive Director of Wreaths Across America Karen Worcester. “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 to serve as an official ‘welcome home’ station for our nation’s Vietnam Veterans.
When the MEE pulls into your area, all veterans, active-duty military, their families, and the local community members are invited and encouraged to visit, take a tour and speak with WAA representatives and volunteers. They can also share more about the national nonprofit, and the work its volunteers do to support our heroes and their communities year-round.
Planned stops include:
KEMP–From 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Friday, March 12, Kemp High School will be hosting the MEE in their parking lot located at 220N SH274 for a community learning opportunity.
MABANK– From 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Saturday, March 13 The Sarah Maples Chapter of the NSDAR and the City of Mabank Help welcome the MEE for a visit at the First Baptist Church located at 110 E. Mt. Vernon Street parking lot.
SEVEN POINTS–From 10:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. Sunday, March 14 Cedar Creek Brewery and the Sarah Maples Chapter of the NSDAR invites the Wreaths Across America MEE for a stop at 336 E. Seven Points Pkwy (SH 334).
The public tours for the MEE are free and open to the public with social distancing, sanitation and COVID-19 safety procedures in place to protect the health of all visitors in accordance with the CDCs recommendation for large gatherings stemming from concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. Members of the media, dignitaries, veterans and other interested groups are urged to come, ask questions, share stories and experience this one-of-a-kind exhibit.
