There will be a short Memorial Day ceremony at Pine Grove Cemetery, 6200 Vinton N.W. on Memorial Day, Monday May 30 at 11:00 a.m.
For decades, Alpine Township has recognized those departed veterans who served in the United States Armed Forces and are buried in Alpine Township maintained cemeteries. Also included in this ceremony are those veterans buried in Holy Trinity Cemetery.
This year’s ceremony will take place on Monday May 28 at Pine Grove Cemetery beginning at 11:00 a.m. and is open to the general public. This year’s speaker will be Mark Bowditch, Senior Pastor of Family of Christ Lutheran Church in Alpine Township. Pastor Mark is also Chaplain Major Bowditch serving his country in the United States Naval Reserves. We hope that you can spare a few minutes Memorial Day and join Chaplain Mark, Township officials, families and friends of veterans and other patriotic residents to honor those who served in the military.
