On May 1, Calumet Park Cemetery will be officially 85 years old. The Merrillville Chamber of Commerce acknowledged and awarded Calumet Park as the oldest business in Merrillville that that has continuously been owned and operated by the original founders and decendents. Watch this space over the next few months as there will be special announcements regarding the celebration of this anniversary. Memorial Weekend in particular will have some special fun activities for the entire family. If all goes according to plan, there will be a dedication during that weekend of the bronze kneeling soldier praying at the cross that will sit atop the veterans cremation columbarium.
