December 2022 Events

2022 Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony

Dec 3, 2022 02:00 PM to Dec 3, 2022 04:00 PM

2022 Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony


Please join us on Saturday, December 3, 2022, from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. for Jefferson Memorial’s Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony. Families are invited to join us to hang a personalized tree ornament dedicated to their loved one on our remembrance tree. We encourage families to bring their own ornament which may showcase the unique life of their loved one. If you choose not to bring your own ornament, we will have decorations on hand to place on the tree for all who attend.


At this time, there will be a community tree to decorate, light holiday refreshments, as well as holiday-themed music. In the past, this event has been held outside of the Jefferson Memorial Funeral Home. This year, we plan to move indoors to the Jefferson Memorial Mausoleum, located directly across the mall from the Administration Building.


There are many holidays celebrated over the month of December, including but not limited to Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Winter Solstice and more. Whether you commemorate any of these holidays, or simply wish to come together in fellowship with others who have lost a loved one over the recent years, we look forward to gathering together to celebrate your loved one’s life.


On behalf of Jefferson Memorial Cemetery, Funeral Home, Crematory & Arboretum, and the Neel Family, we wish you a safe and happy holidays and upcoming New Year.

Please note: Ornaments will be kept on the tree until February 3, 2023. Therefore, if you would like to keep your ornament for next year, please remove it from the tree by this date.  While we encourage any ornaments brought to be a personalized token of your loved one, we do not suggest any item of value, either personal or monetary value, to be utilized. You will be able to come and pick up your ornament by the first week in February at the Jefferson Memorial Funeral Home, otherwise, all decorations will be removed.
