On November 11, Calumet Park Cemetery sponsored a meaningful Veterans Day Tribute with approximately 100 in attendance. This turnout was a nice surprise considering the weather turned to you know what overnight. Paul Vogel II opened the event with an appropriate prayer and thank you to all who contributed to make this the best nation in the world. This was followed by a short and powerful speech from John Rassbach, thanking vets for their service to this country. He made special mention for the families of veterans as they served their country as well when they had a loved one wearing the uniform of the U.S. military. Keynote speaker Pat O’Donnell gave a moving talk on some of his own experiences in Nam and stressed that war is hell, and so is being a loved one of a veteran. He noted that we are all in the debt to anyone who donned the uniform, man or woman. A placing of a wreath before the flag, with a gun salute and taps were incorporated in the Veterans Day show of appreciation. The gathering concluded with the cutting of a yellow ribbon to officially dedicate the new bronze, kneeling soldier before a cross on the new Veteran Memorial Columbariu.

If you ever thought about having your own family mausoleum, call us. We are developing a new site within Calumet Park Cemetery that will have a pond, fountain, beautiful landscaping and lots for sale in the near future. This project may not fit everyone’s budget, but hey…everyone can’t afford to live in Ogden Dunes either. Yet, someone bought every house, big or small, in this lakeside community. So, why not consider having your own private, luxury final resting place?
Design your own unique private mausoleum. Call 219-769-8803 for more information.
A man-made pond has been excavated just south of the original mausoleum at Calumet Park Cemetery in Merrillville, Indiana. The development of a beautiful space to design a private mausoleum program is evolving as either one or two (as shown in artist’s rendition) fountains in the new pond will serve as the centerpiece of the new “neighborhood”.
The west side of the development will have a tastefully designed community mausoleum. There will be niches for cremation and a paved and landscaped road that will offer access to the new development. The community mausoleum will have an inside chapel for committal services or when visiting on inclement weather days. Each of the private mausoleums will be unique and be produced for the exact needs of each family wishing to set up this sort of estate. Below you may see some ideas for your very own final resting place that may trigger your thoughts on the possibilities. You will be able to choose from private mausoleums that already have already been produced or you may start from scratch and work with one of our specialists in coming up with a look that is just right for you.
