Westlake Historical Society placing wreaths on historical graves

Johnson side

Last year the Westlake Historical Society began placing wreaths on the graves of founding and pioneer citizens of early Dover (now Westlake). We believe placing a wreath on a grave is not only a symbol of remembrance, it is a sign of respect for that person and who they were.

We would like to extend the opportunity for you, your family, organization, group or business to place a Christmas wreath this year in memory of one of our pioneer families. Volunteers from the Westlake Historical Society will place the wreaths on the graves of our founding and pioneer families on Saturday, Dec. 10, at 10 a.m.  

If you have a wreath you would like us to place, please contact us at 440-808-1961.You may email us at westlakehistory@yahoo.com. Society members can also pick up the wreath from you. If you would like to sponsor a wreath, the cost is only $15 each. We will be placing wreaths at both Evergreen and Maple Ridge cemeteries.
