Memorial Day Ceremony at Forest Lawn Cemetery
Each year, Forest Lawn hosts the Erie County American Legion Memorial Day ceremony to honor and salute the brave men and
women of the United States armed forces. The Decoration of Graves begins at 8:00am, where flags are placed on the graves of
veterans buried in the Field of Valor®, followed by a full program beginning in front of the American Legion Memorial Monument
in the Veterans section (near the Main Street gates). Afterwards, stroll the 269-acres to view beautiful sculpture, breathtaking
scenery and the permanent residents, from a US President and foreign royalty to captains of industry, artists, inventors and more.
