2020 Wreaths Across America Project

 2020 Wreaths Across America

For the third year in a row, the Mechanical Contractors Association of NW Ohio, participated in Wreaths Across America on December 19th, 2020.  With the assistance of the Piping Industry Training Center apprentices, MCA staff members and MCA contractors, 70 wreaths were distributed at 33 different cemeteries throughout Northwest Ohio. The designated wreaths were placed on gravestones to honor UA Local 50 veterans.

When the MCA first got involved with this mission, it was discovered that not all veterans received wreaths on their grave sites during the holiday season.  The MCA wanted to make sure that each one of the veterans from UA Local 50 were remembered.  This project is a team effort from both management and labor.  There is no better time to express our appreciation than during the hustle and bustle of the most wonderful time of the year.
