Due to ongoing concerns surrounding COVID-19, Dayton Memorial Park is restricting social events for the remainder of 2020 that might impact the health of our customers, families, and employees. The following events will be affected:

Veterans’ Day
There will be no ceremony for Veterans’ Day 2020. The veterans’ names that would have been read this year will be included in the ceremony to be held in 2021.

Christmas Tree Lighting
There will be no tree lighting ceremonies for 2020. However, families may still bring ornaments to hang on the Christmas tree, which will be set up in the Abbey Mausoleum after December 7, 2020.

Wreaths Across America
The Miami Valley Young Marines will still be placing wreaths in Dayton Memorial Park Cemetery on December 19, 2020. For more information on this great program use this link: https://www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/pages/142620/Overview/?relatedId=142619.  Sadly, there will be no ceremony preceding the placing the wreaths. We look forward to working with the Miami Valley Young Marines in 2021, hopefully holding a full ceremony and placing wreaths honoring our many veterans.

Jennifer Stiver awarded Special Employee Award

On Saturday February 15, 2020, Dayton Memorial Park and Cemetery's Office Administrator, Jennifer Stiver was awarded the Special Employee Award at the Ohio Cemetery Association annual awards night in Dublin, Ohio.

This award is based on her exemplary performance throughout this past year. Not only did she perform her duties as Office Administrator, she stepped in to fill the vacant Family Advisor position, created a family advisor training manual and became the primary Family Advisor trainer for newly hired Family Advisors.

Jennifer also led the monument resetting process after the Memorial Day Tornado blew down 200 monuments. This entailed photographing each monument before resetting and after, recording any damage, and contacting families after the monument was reset.

Congratulations, Jennifer!

Flag Poles to Honor our Veterans Project: Section 22, needs Larger/Taller Flag Poles to replace the smaller/shorter flag poles now in existence. With your help, we can accomplish this goal sooner rather than later.

Section Identification Signage Project: We find that each generation is interested in their family/loved ones' burial sites. Our section identification signage is nearly non-existent or is badly in need of replacement. This identification signage helps all of our Cemetery supporters locate their loved ones. With your help, we can expedite this Section Identification Signage replacement project which will benefit everyone. Stop by our office to see a sample of the section identification signage or to chat with our staff about supporting this important project.
