150th Anniversary New Cemetery
The Board of Trustees invites you to participate in a ceremony commemorating the New Cemetery’s 150 years of service to the community. The event will be held on Saturday, May 13, 2017.
As indicated in the enclosed flyer, a Gathering, with refreshments, will begin at 9:00 am in the Veteran’s Circle area. Boy Scouts from Troop 83 will direct you to parking locations and then to the Circle.
The cemetery has had a rich non-sectarian religious theme since its 1867 founding and a dedication to honor the veterans of all American wars. The 9:30 am ceremony will reflect elements of both. Tours, guided and self-guided will take you through a wonderful landscape dotted by well over 1000 flags placed on the graves of Veterans by Cub Scouts from Somerville Pack 80.
Following the ceremony, there will be tours, guided and self-guided, through the Cemetery dotted with well over 1000 flags placed on the graves of Veterans by Cub Scouts from Somerville based Pack 80. Other activities and refreshments will be available.
