Avenue of Flags
The Avenue of Flags currently has nearly 1800 casket flags that fly each Memorial Day. Our local Avenue of Flags committee is dedicated to the preservation and storage of these special flags. Each flag bears the name of the Veteran whose casket was covered by it at burial. Each flag is given a number which corresponds with it’s place in the Avenue of Flags.
Community Cremation Annual Scattering Day
The Visalia Public Cemetery schedules an annual cremation scattering day each November. The scattering day will assist families in transitioning from personal possession of urns; to a permanent placement of their loved ones at the cemetery. By utilizing the scattering garden options available, families respectfully lay their loved ones to rest in both a meaningful and affordable manner.
A brief memorial service will be held prior to the scatterings. There are 2 sites to choose from, either the Eagle or the Angel. The deceased name, dates of birth and death will be engraved on the statue at their chosen site.
There are several options available for families that prefer to lay their loved ones to rest in an urn as opposed to the scattering garden, contact the cemetery office for more information.
