Another hint Sharon shared for making contact through the cemetery is to leave your card at the main office and ask the staff to offer your contact information to others who inquire about the same family name or specific person. “We are creating a notebook for these cards and contact sheets,” says Karla Hollencamp, Calvary Cemetery Community Relations. “You could also mail us your information and we’ll put it in the notebook. Then when someone comes looking for a relative in the cemetery, they can check the notebook to see who else has been looking. These family connections are like finding buried treasure. People discover cousins and others they never knew existed.”
Calvary’s 138th Annual Memorial Day Mass will be held Sunday, May 27 at 12:30 PM. Boy Scout Troop 516 will present a flag ceremony beginning at noon. The Treblemakers, a barbershop quartet, will sing The Battle Hymn of the Republic and the Star Spangled Banner as a prelude to the service. Father Scot Wright of Incarnation will be the celebrant. A release of 300 red, white and blue balloons will follow.
