The 5th Annual Wreaths Across America (WAA) in Coppell will be held in 2020, and this year’s celebration is scheduled for the Rolling Oaks Memorial Cemetery, at 400 Freeport Parkway, on Saturday, December 19, beginning at 11:00am sharp.  Wreaths Across America is a national program held at over 1000 sites and honors almost 1,000,000 service people who have given their lives in service to our country.

WAA is also committed to teaching younger generations about the value of their freedoms, and the importance of honoring those who sacrificed so much to protect those freedoms.  Their motto is REMEMBER, HONOR, and TEACH.

All citizens are welcome to attend the local ceremony and invited to help place wreaths that day.  The City of Coppell Honor Guard will be on-site to present the colors, Taps will be played, and the ceremony will follow the same format as has been used since our first local recognition in 2016.

The cemetery currently has 83 veterans buried on its grounds.  In past years, we have had such generosity of Coppell citizens to purchase wreaths for the site.  Any overages are automatically sent to Dallas National Cemetery, as they struggle to fill to capacity. This year, we are at a tremendous deficit of wreaths, and are looking for help in purchasing those.  We currently only have 25 wreath orders and we’d love any help in filling those additional 55 wreaths so that all our veterans are remembered.  Wreaths are $15 each.

There are 2 ways to purchase wreaths (and need to be ordered by November 30!):

Online, by going to  That is the Coppell group website, and the easiest way to donate.  The other way is by filling out an order form from the website and mailing a check to: Wreaths Across America, PO Box 249, Columbia Falls, ME, 04623.

The Coppell Republican Women will hold its first evening meeting of 2020 at the William T. Cozby Library in Coppell on February 6, 2020, featuring guest speakers Edward Retta and Maria Garcia of the Hispanic Republican Club of North Texas (HRCNT). A social time will begin at 6:30 pm, followed by their regular meeting and speakers at 7:00 pm.

Last month, CNN profiled Border Hispanics for Trump – a pro-Trump group of Hispanics near El Paso, Texas. Their leader, Ray Baca, told CNN reporter Nick Valencia that President Trump is the one “who most closely represents my values,” despite Valencias repeated anti-Trump comments made during the interview. Republicans and Hispanics share many of the same values, such as being pro-family, pro-faith and pro-life.

Recognizing a need to encourage Latino political participation, Garcia founded the HRCNT, which provides education, monthly speaker presentations, and the camaraderie necessary to encourage Latinos to engage in public service. Born in Queretaro, Mexico, Maria migrated to the United States with her family when she was nine years old. Since moving to North Texas, she has been lauded as an outstanding volunteer, fundraiser, mentor and servant leader who has been successful in expanding the Hispanic presence in the Republican Party.

Edward Retta, Principal of Cross Culture Communications and Co-founder of Latino Cultural Center Dallas acts as Advisor to HRCNT. Retta has a lifetime of international experience, a bi- cultural childhood and a professional education to help people work with others from different cultures. First a graduate of Texas A&M University, he is also an Honors Graduate in Cross Cultural Ministry from Dallas Theological Seminary, with thesis research completed at Oxford University in England. He also completed the International Leadership School in Wales, UK. Retta has delivered cross cultural solutions in over 50 countries, and conducted training for leading global companies, for NASA and for the US Air Force, Air War College.

Her living testimony proves that women can both parent and prosper!
