Memorial Day is a national holiday and a day of remembrance of those who have died while serving our country in the armed forces. Originally called Decoration Day, it was a day to visit the cemetery and decorate the graves of fallen soldiers. Now it is a day to honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice – their lives.
A special Memorial Day Mass: Cedar Grove Cemetery welcomes the public to a Memorial Mass on Sunday, May 26th, 11am on the cemetery grounds at Gilman Chapel.
