Come visit your family gravesites and maybe spruce them up a bit –bring your tools and supplies and plant your flowers! Or just to come and enjoy the beauty of the park and share time and words with your loved ones, with your family and friends, and with other the other descendants who have come to visit their ancestors. Woodland Cemetery is one of the loveliest and most peaceful places in all of Cleveland. Let us share.
On August 29, 2015, let us share. Let us share our family stories and the beauty that is around us. Let us share the history of ourselves and of our city. Let us share the stories of our common past and maybe carry lessons learned into our communal future.
No celebration is complete without a feast. Please plan to share a potluck picnic luncheon with your family, friends, and other descendants. Bring a favorite family dish or share one that your ancestors favored. Bring your own picnic basket. Woodland Cemetery Foundation will be providing food and drink and your contribution would be most welcome. Let us share.
Festivities will start on August 29th at 10:00AM, with the picnic potluck beginning around 11:00AM and continuing throughout the day. Please bring your dish to share along with your picnic basket and blanket – or table – and your memories and stories. Please remember that Woodland Cemetery is an alcohol free zone, so no alcoholic beverages, please!
If you have never been to Woodland Cemetery, it is a wonderful place to visit. If you are unsure of how to get to the grave location of your ancestor, members of the foundation will be more than happy to assist. If you send us an email ahead of time, we will provide you with the burial records and the grave location for your ancestors.
