Annual 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.

Pavilion
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.

Funding
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.
