Started by the legacy Kaposia Chapter of the Totanhan Nakaha Lodge, the annual Ft. Snelling National Cemetery Wreath Clean-up is one of the largest service projects undertaken in Northern Star Scouting each year. Held the first Saturday in February (this year, Saturday February 6, 2021), the project consists of removing wreaths and holiday decorations from memorials on the grounds of the Ft. Snelling National Cemetery. Although led by the Totanhan Nakaha Lodge of the Order of the Arrow, the event is open to Cub Scouts, Scouts, Venturers, and the public.
In just a few short hours, our volunteers collect and dispose of every wreath left on or near every headstone at the cemetery – no small feat to be sure!
