For the last few years we held a memorial service on Armed Forces Day to honor veterans
buried in the cemeteries. This year we celebrate the religious diversity of patients
buried and invite members of churches of all faiths in Wood and Lucas counties to
attend. This is the second in series of memorial events representing different aspects
of the diversity of those buried in the cemeteries.
This year's event will be held Saturday May 20 at 11 am, with a service at the new
cemetery with speakers and a shorter service at the old cemetery. The keynote speaker
will be Rev Tim Barger from the First Unitarian Church on Glendale Avenue. The event
will be followed by light lunch.
