Friends Of Historic Cedar View Cemetery

Memorial Day

We welcome all families and friends to attend our annual Memorial Day Wreath Laying on Memorial Day, May 27th at 2 pm. Each year we have had the honor and pleasure of having the 3rd NJ Volunteer Infantry Civil War reenactors at our event. It is amazing to see them in action and they add so much to the event. We will have a couple of guest speakers and we will be presenting our former Board Member and well known Author, Rick Geffken with an award for his work with Cedar View Cemetery and The Friends of Cedar View.

If you would like to be a sponsor for Memorial Day.   For a donation of  $100.00 or more, your name and organization/business will be added to the event program as a sponsor of the event.
