Upcoming Events

We are proud to be a part of your community. Below is a list of events, activities, and seminars that we are involved in.

December 2021 Events

Holiday Memorial Service

Dec 10, 2021 01:00 PM to Dec 31, 2021 11:59 PM
This event is typically the first Saturday of December in River View Cemetery’s Adams Chapel. This year we have again made the decision to pre-record the service and post it on our website, YouTube channel, and Instagram and Facebook pages so that families are able to safely experience the service from their homes in a way that meets their needs.
 
We recognize that this time of year is difficult with a flood of memories and feeling of loss that comes when a loved one is not with you for the holidays. Each year we are honored to offer the community an event that is dedicated to the memory of those who
have passed. Rev. Chuck Bonneau will be hosting us through the service and providing comforting seasonal thoughts. We invite you to send your loved one’s name to be announced at the service as we light a candle in their memory. You may submit your loved
one’s name (with pronunciation, if necessary) to katie@riverviewcemetery.org, no later than November 27th.
 

 

National Children's Memorial Day Candlelighting Service

Dec 10, 2021 07:00 PM to Dec 31, 2021 11:59 PM
This special service will be held to commemorate the lives of all children, loved and lost. The service and indoor candle lighting will be once again available for viewing on our website, YouTube channel, Instagram, and Facebook page starting the week of December 10th.
