Cemetery

Our flagship project is the restoration and maintenance of Homosassa’s historic Stage Stand Cemetery. The club chose to adopt this forgotten landmark, to honor the many residents and veterans who are interred here. Once a month, members volunteer their time to weed, prune and tend the landscaping on the grounds. We have planted gardens, trees and uncovered old grave sites. Currently, we are in the first phase of installing a historic marker, at the cemetery’s entrance. On Veteran’s Day and Memorial Day, we organize a ceremony to pay tribute to the service of our Armed Forces.

We’d be happy to have any volunteers, so if you’d like to help, just contact us and request to add your email address for notifications of cemetery activities. We gratefully extend our thanks to the many community members who have lent a hand or donated materials to improve this landmark.

Photos of some of the monuments can be found here.
