Annual Decoration Day

Decoration Day is a time honoured tradition where families visit the cemetery to pay respects to their loved ones by tidying up gravesites, cleaning cemetery memorials, and placing floral tributes. This annual observance has been honoured for decades at our cemetery but few can remember the true history behind this tradition.

Decoration Day, a precursor to Remembrance Day, was once a nationally recognized day in Canada that commemorated our war dead. On this day Canadians would gather at war memorials, visit the cemetery to clean up veteran’s gravesites, and leave floral tributes, wreaths and garlands.

 

Decoration Day is normally held the second Sunday of June. The 2023 Wyoming Public Cemetery Decoration Day was held on June 11th.
