Dia de los Muertos

Due to COVID-19, the District has made the decision to modify this year’s celebration, keeping health and safety our highest priority. A public altar will be set up for viewing and contribution Friday, October 30th through Sunday, November 1st. Informational signage has been created and will be displayed along our turf to help educate those who visit the cemetery.

Ven a honrar a los antepasados y seres queridos, que han cruzado al mundo de los espíritus.

Veterans Day Ceremony

 

Due to COVID-19, the District has made the difficult decision to modify this year’s celebration, keeping health and safety our highest priority.

While we will not be hosting a formal Veterans Day program, the Davis Scouting groups have graciously volunteered to help honor our Veterans by placing flags. Individual flags, along with our internal roadway flags will be placed Wednesday, November 11th, and removed Thursday, November 12th.

Annual Wreath Fundraiser

Family and friends of loved ones can order a holiday wreath to be placed on a grave or displayed at your home. 22″ fresh Noble Fir wreath will be sold for $25 each. All proceeds will go to the continuous care and restoration of our beautiful cemetery as well as to help fund various outreach events throughout the year. Orders will be accepted while supplies last.

Orders can be placed by calling (530) 756-7807 or emailing jess@daviscemetery.org or judy@daviscemetery.org
