Christmas Tree in Abbey Mausoleum at Dayton Memorial Park

COVID-19 may have prevented us from having our Memorial Christmas Tree Lighting, but it didn't stop us from putting up our traditional decorations, including the Memorial Christmas Tree, in the Abbey Mausoleum. As always, we invite anyone who would like to honor a lost loved one to place an ornament on the tree. Feel free to personalize it if you wish. The Abbey is open every day of the week from 9 AM until 5 PM. The tree will be in place until January 4, 2021. All apparently personalized ornaments will be moved to the office for pickup and held until February 15, 2021. After that date, any unclaimed ornaments will be given to Goodwill.

The Board of Trustees and staff wish everyone a safe and joyous holiday season.

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.  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.

Dayton Memorial Park Grant Recipient

Dayton Memorial Park Grant Recipient

The Ohio Department of Commerce Division of Real Estate & Professional Licensing is awarding $75,357 to 65 cemeteries in 34 counties throughout Ohio, through the newly-created Cemetery Grant Fund. Dayton Memorial Park Cemetery is pleased to announce that it has been chosen as one of the recipients. This newly-created fund’s purpose is to help cemeteries statewide to defray the cost of exceptional cemetery maintenance.

The $5,000 grant will be matched by the cemetery and added to a portion of a Small Business Administration emergency loan. Those funds will be used to replace some of the nearly 100 mature trees that were lost or severely damaged by the Memorial Day Tornado.

These trees were planted by Bladecutters, Inc. They will also water and care for these trees for the next year, assuring each tree's success.

Thanks again to the Ohio Department of Commerce for making this possible!

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.
