Our cemetery is proud to host different community events throughout the year. Celebrating everything from the sacrifices of our armed forces to honoring and cherishing the memory of pregnancy and infant loss. It is through the collaboration of cemetery staff and the many wonderful volunteers and donations, that we are afforded the opportunity to hold these gatherings. Please keep an eye on our facebook page for volunteer or donation opportunities along with updates and schedules for our next upcoming event to be held at the cemetery.
