Each year we invite our property owners to celebrate Easter at Sunrise. This event includes a message of love, dove release and balloon release followed by donuts, coffee and juice for all.
This is a national event for which Forest Lawn East has been a participant for the past three years. The goal each year is to raise enough funds to put a fresh evergreen wreath on every single veteran who is laid to rest in our cemetery.
The date of the event is selected by WAA and occurs on the same day at the same time across the United States. Donations are taken for the wreaths years around in our cemetery office or online at WAA.
Civic, military and high school groups such as ROTC and marching bands all play a role in this event. WAA is a national organization and we encourage you to visit their website. www.wreathsacrossamerica.org
Every year between the middle of November and the first week of December, we plan our annual candlelight remembrance service to share with those families who have lost loves ones in the preceding 12 months.
Through a message of hope, music, memorial video and the presentation of crystal ornaments to each family, we have a chance to say, “Thank you. We are thinking of you.”
