Reunion and Decoration Day
The first Saturday of
August each year
is a gathering day for families of those buried in the Wright
Cemetery. As we gather, we renew relationships, meet additions
to the family, and share a common meal. Everyone who comes
brings something to be shared in the pavilion built in the
center of the cemetery.
The pavilion has become the
gathering place and was constructed on the site where
generations past have met under the trees. Families see each
other again, children play together, flowers are placed on
graves to commemorate those who have passed on, and the
individuals responsible for oversight of the cemetery provide
maintenance and financial
information to all who have come.
Wright's Cemetery is a private
cemetery and is managed entirely from donations and endowments.
All donations are appreciated and used effectively and entirely
for the maintenance of the cemetery. Grave sites are reserved by
requests, not "sold", to individuals.
