  Laying wreaths at Pikes Peak National Cemetery
  Submitted by thmerican Legion in Falcon

   Wreaths Across America conducted its first wreath laying event at the new Pikes Peak National Cemetery. Phase 1 of the PPNC was officially opened this fall, and burials have begun for our veterans.
   The mission of Wreaths Across America is to preserve the memories of America’s service members. Throughout the nation, this event is conducted on the third Saturday in December each year at thousands of cemeteries. On Dec. 15, family, friends and volunteers honored the veterans buried at PPNC by placing wreaths on their graves, speaking the veteran’s name, thanking them for their service and sacrifice, and reflecting on their lives.
   Dane R. Balcon Post 2008 of The American Legion here in Falcon participated in this event with several other organizations. Members of the Post, Auxiliary, Sons and riders held flags, placed wreaths and provided coffee, cocoa and snacks to all the participants. Members also explained military customs and traditions to many volunteers present during the ceremony. Wreaths Across America, like The American Legion, is committed to teaching younger generations about the value of their freedom and the importance of honoring those who sacrificed so much to protect that freedom.

   Banning Lewis 5K Santa Sprint
   The annual Banning Lewis Ranch 5K Santa Sprint was held Dec. 8. The event raises money for large purchases like the circle track for all the schools in Banning Lewis. Heather Zambrano, the executive director for the Banning Lewis Ranch Academy Foundation, coordinated the event. In addition to the sprint, there were vendor booths and a bounce house. Many participants wore festive seasonal garb!
