The Past is our furture
Our sole purpose is to preservate Woodland Cemetery through fundraising and awareness initiatives. We are committed to safeguarding the historical, cultural, and natural significance of Woodland Cemetery as a cherished community asset. By mobilizing resources and generating public support, we aim to ensure the long-term preservation, maintenance, and accessibility of this sacred resting place.
Woodland Cemetery is a twenty-five-acre, active, non-sectarian cemetery with over five acres of undeveloped land. Through our fundraising efforts, we seek to help keep Woodland Cemetery financially solvent and provide funds for income-generating capital improvements that will benefit current and future lot holders. We actively engage with the community, encouraging participation and donations from individuals, corporations, and organizations who recognize the importance of Woodland Cemetery’s preservation and development.
Furthermore, we are dedicated to raising awareness about Woodland Cemetery’s historical and cultural value. Through educational programs, events, and outreach activities, we aim to highlight the cemetery’s unique stories, cultural heritage, and environmental significance. By fostering a sense of connection and appreciation among community members and visitors, we strive to ensure that Woodland Cemetery remains a revered landmark for future generations.
Ultimately, our organization is driven by a deep sense of responsibility to honor the past and protect the future. We believe that by preserving Woodland Cemetery, we are not only safeguarding a physical space but also preserving the memories, legacies, and contributions of those who came before us. With the collective efforts of our volunteers, supporters, and stakeholders, we aspire to create a sustainable and vibrant future for Woodland Cemetery as a place of remembrance, reflection, and reverence.
