Wreaths Across America once again choose Toms River to host an event here in Ocean County. St. Joseph’s RC Church hosted the event at St. Joseph’s Cemetery in Toms River.

According to Andrew Anderson….”His In-laws Charles and Carol Koch, are the organizers. With Father Scott's blessing, they contacted Wreaths Across America and petitioned for St. Joseph's Cemetery to become a Wreaths Across America cemetery after their son, MAJ Charles J. Koch USMC lost his life while serving our country back in 2013.” Thank you to the Koch’s. 🙏🏻
