2017 Luminary Decorating

December 10, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Today, Sunday, December 10 from 1-4 pm, you and your family are invited to custom decorate a luminary bag to personally honor a friend or family member who is no longer with us. You’re then encouraged to place it at his or her grave site prior to our Annual Luminary Event for your own private ceremony. We’ll also have a special patriotic area setup at the flagpole near our Customer Care Center to honor friends and family members who are currently serving in our armed forces.


This free event is popular with people who are trying to cope with the recent loss of friends or family, or for those who are separated from their currently serving family members. It’s especially popular with children. Everyone is welcome to participate, regardless of whether your loved one is buried here. We’ll also have coffee, hot chocolate, and a variety of holiday treats for you to enjoy while you create your masterpieces. We look forward to seeing you today!
