Another successful Memorial Weekend is now part of history. Thousands of families visited the cemetery over the long weekend. Many planted flowers and all showed respect for the sacrifices made by their uniformed loved ones that gave their lives for our freedom. There were a number of services conducted by different religious denominations as honor was paid to all those who have passed on, whether military or civilian. Blessings to all who entered the gates of Calumet Park and for all those whose hearts were here but were physically unable to visit their loved one’s graves.
A special thanks to all the folks who worked so hard to make the cemetery a place that welcomes visitors. Remember us next year as we have had bigger and bigger crowds attend our free fireworks, lantern release, horse drawn carriage and hayride evening of fun as part of the Memorial Day ceremonies.
