The Friends of Historic Woodland Cemetery and the Historical Society of Quincy and Adams County are co-sponsoring a Memorial Day Eve program entitled Sunset on the Sacred Grounds of Woodland Cemetery on Sunday, May 25thThe commemoration will begin at 7 pm with a lineup of cars to form a motorcade parade on Front Street at Clat Adams Bicentennial Park (Front and Hampshire). The motorcade will follow Front Street to Jefferson Street and on to the cemetery on South 5th Street.   Volunteers will direct cars when they enter the cemetery.

Cemetery gates will be closed until the procession arrives, but participants can gather at the gate of the cemetery also, and enter after the procession. Participants will gather at the Soldiers’ Monument for a program that will include bagpipe music as well as other musical selections, presentations to mark Memorial Day and a Native American sacred ceremony.  The sacred ceremony will honor the Native American heritage incorporated in the cemetery and prevalent in the Mississippi Valley.

The program will conclude at sunset with taps and the lighting of the LED candles that will be distributed to everyone. In the event of inclement weather the Mausoleum will be used for the program.
