The Episcopal Church of St. Francis in Moab will be offering a traditional non-denominational graveside winter wreath for remembering loved ones who are buried in the Grand Valley, Sunset Memorial Gardens, Castle Valley, Castleton, Monticello, La Sal, Thompson and Elgin cemeteries of Grand and San Juan counties. Wreaths are also available by home delivery or pick-up, according to a news release.

The 25-inch balsam fir wreaths are mounted on a 36-inch wire easel. Each wreath is hand-crafted from Minnesota balsam fir and decorated with pine cones, red holly berries and a red velvet weatherproof bow. The cost is $28 per wreath. All proceeds benefit St. Francis Church.

All orders received before Nov. 1 will be installed at the local cemeteries in late November and will remain until cemetery cleanup in the early spring, officials said. Late orders will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Wreaths can be purchased by sending payment to the Episcopal Church of St. Francis, c/o Wreath Project, P.O. Box 96, Moab, Utah, 84532. Include the name of the deceased, cemetery and the name, address and phone number of the person purchasing the wreath. For more information, contact Don Hamilton at 435-719-2018.
