Please join us on Memorial Day.  The City of Rosemead will host an official ceremony at Savannah Memorial Park on Monday, May 27, 2013, 10:30 am, complete with 21-gun salute and a bagpipe accompaniment.  The cemetery is located at 9263 Valley Blvd., Rosemead, CA 91770.  For information call Jan, 626-443-8325

After the Ceremony there will be free tours of the cemetery given by LAVA- come and learn the history if this pioneer cemetery and the people that settled this area.

Around 12:15 p.m., following the city ceremony, LAVA members will gather at the main gate and at 12:30 p.m. begin their tour of the cemetery.  Tours guides, all of whom have decades of involvement with the cemetery, will recount the trials and tribulations of the pioneer families who braved the Santa Fe Trail and the Mojave Desert to make their homes in the lowlands of the eastern San Gabriel Valley, before finding eternal rest in these hallowed grounds. You won’t want to miss this very special LAVA excursion!
