2011 Memorial Wreath Program a Big Success!

Thank you to all who made the Memorial Wreath program a success.  The holidays are a time for family and for helping others.  Many did just that by purchasing cemetery wreaths for loved ones and/or for veterans buried at Green Ridge Cemetery.  Veterans dating back to the Revolutionary War are buried at Green Ridge.  It is our goal to honor each and every one of them with a cemetery wreath.

Purchasers will be contacted (by mail or email) regarding flowers in early spring and wreaths in late fall.  If you would like to be placed on our mailing list for information regarding summer flower planting and holiday wreaths, please contact us by phone at 262-652-1631 or by email at  We look forward to hearing from you.

Be sure and check out our full-page ad in the December 31 issue of the Kenosha News.  We also wish to thank the sponsors who contributed to the cost of the ad.  We are thankful to be a part of such a caring and sharing community.  We wish all peace, health, and prosperity in the new year.

Winterizing the Cemetery

This is the time of year when the leaves are falling and the flowers are removed.  We are in the process of winterizing the cemetery.  Please remove any shepherd's hooks and other grave decorations before the snow falls.

It is also time to start thinking about ordering your cemetery wreaths.  Order forms are available in the cemetery office.
