A Memorial Day of Remembrance – Ancestor Grave Decoration

Remember the Ancestors. Tell the stories.

Join us on Memorial Day May 27, 2019, @11:00-12:00 for Ancestor Grave Decoration Day at Midway First Presbyterian Church Cemetery located at 672 N. Coastal Highway Midway, GA.

If you have ancestors, veteran soldiers or civilians, in the recent past as well as the distant past who are buried at Midway First Presbyterian Church Cemetery please come prepared to honor them and to decorate their graves. You may also adopt an ancestor’s grave to honor and decorate.

Possibly, we are expecting Public TV to join us for parts of the program including decorating, Libation Ceremony, Storytelling, Singing, and Poetry.

Free and Open to the public.
