goodDeeds • December 2019
It comes as no surprise to us that many of our county partners do more than just record Deeds — they perform goodDEEDS. By sharing as many of these good deeds as possible, we hope to raise awareness of the various charities and organizations they contribute to. We want to build their momentum and effectiveness in achieving their very important goals.
Fidlar Technologies would like to recognize Tiffany Ringer, Wood County Register of Deeds, Wisconsin, and the highly-important charitable work her and her family complete every year with Wreaths Across America. Wreaths Across America is a charitable organization seeking to honor the men and women who have given their lives protecting our county’s freedom and rights, and those who continue to do so every day. Many homes across the nation have an empty seat at the dinner table, home to a family member who is serving in one of our honored military branches, and Tiffany’s family is one of them. Tiffany’s husband, and father to their 9-year old daughter, is currently deployed, working hard to guarantee that their daughter can continue to grow up in a future that many, like Tiffany’s husband, fought to ensure. Tiffany, her husband, and their daughter volunteer with Wreaths Across America every year, laying wreaths at King Veteran’s Cemetery in Waupaca, Wisconsin. Many volunteers, across the nation, partake in this volunteer work, including one of Tiffany’s deputies, who also volunteered as recently as 2018.
“My family and I take part in Wreaths Across America every year, laying wreaths at our local veterans’ cemetery. This is a nice way for my husband, our 9-year old daughter, and I to be able to give back to those who gave their lives defending ours. I especially looked forward to participating this year as my husband is currently deployed and it gave our daughter and I a nice way to honor his service. Wreaths Across America provides a great service and I’m happy that my family can be a part of it.”
-Tiffany Ringer, Wood County Register of Deeds
Wreaths Across America coordinates wreath-laying ceremonies every year on National Wreaths Across America Day, December 14th. While this event takes place on one specific day, the organization seeks to employ their mission to “Remember, Honor and Teach” throughout the year. With more than 1,600 participating locations, Wreaths Across America honors members of the nation’s military branches in many ways through various forms of volunteer work. Corporate sponsors work closely with volunteer citizens to provide wreaths to all participating locations with the help of trucking partners who make it all possible. Thousands of holiday wreaths are delivered across the nation, making it possible for people like Tiffany Ringer, and her family, to be a part of something bigger than all of us.
