October 2023: A big month!

It has been a dynamic, exciting month and we have many things to share; this probably could have been five or more newsletters, but we didn’t want to overwhelm everybody’s mailboxes! We do want to be sure to get all the updates to you, though, so please click through the table of contents to read more about everything that's happening at Vermont Forest Cemetery.

Opening Day

Vermont Forest Cemetery held its Grand Opening on Saturday, October 7th, 2023. Over 30 people braved the rain to help us celebrate with poetry reading, and talks about casket weaving, history and forest conservation. We are so grateful to all of you for helping us make this day possible. VFC Board member Jim Hogle wrote a brief summary of his thoughts on the opening. Now that the Cemetery is open, the public is welcome to visit. The land is open to everyone, regardless of whether or not they want to be buried there. Come and take a hike any time, but please stay on trails and do not disturb any grave sites. If there are many vehicles in the parking area it is likely that a burial is taking place at that time, and we ask that visitors be respectful of the needs of the family. You can also sign up for a guided tour to learn more about the Cemetery and our mission.
