The Cayuga County Vietnam Veterans Chapter 704 is partnering with Cayuga Community College and the Cayuga County Community College Foundation to bring a premier veterans memorial to Auburn.

As part of a national tour, the Wreaths Across America Mobile Education Exhibit will be displayed at Cayuga Community College’s Auburn Campus on Monday, August 9. The exhibit is free and open to the public from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The unique, 1,500-square-foot mobile museum is designed both as an informative review of the service of veterans and an appreciation of their sacrifice.

“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 for Wreaths Across America.

The museum features interactive exhibits, short films and shared stories, and unites community members, veterans, active-duty service members and their families in recognition of the contributions of veterans. Family-oriented activities will also be present for visitors.

Wreaths Across America representatives will be available for tours and questions, and Vietnam veterans will be honored in a pinning ceremony at 6 p.m. Tours are free and open to the public. COVID-19 safety procedures, including social distancing and hand sanitization, remain in effect.

Visitors can also order holiday wreaths for the annual Cayuga County Wreaths Across America event, scheduled for December 18 at St. Peter and St. John’s Church on Genesee Street in Auburn.
