Historic Bell to be rung at Memorial Day Ceremony on May 26th
Saturday, May 26, 2018 at 9am


The public is cordially invited to join us at 9AM on Saturday May 26th at Oakwood Cemetery for our annual Memorial Day Ceremony. The historic 3 ton Meneely bell in front of the Earl Chapel will be rung nine times to mark the start of the event. The Friends of Oakwood Cemetery and the Veterans of Lansingburgh will lay wreaths in honor of all deceased veterans. Michael Barrett will MC and Jim Pratt of the Veterans’ Miracle Center will speak. Nikki Osterhout will sing the national anthem. Representatives of the NYS 125th reenactors will fire a musket salute. Local Boy Scouts will place American flags on graves at the Soldiers’ Plot. There is no charge for this event. In case of heavy rain, the ceremony will be moved into the chapel. We hope you’ll join us.







Friends of Oakwood Gargoyle Key Ring/Bottle Opener


Click Here for the Gargoyle Key Ring/Bottle Opener order form.

The first cremation at the Gardner Earl Chapel was done in January of 1890. We are happy to announce the creation of a Gardner Earl Commemorative GARGOYLE KEY RING/BOTTLE OPENER. It is based on a photo of our "very own gargoyle" at the chapel and professionally made.

The reverse is marked: Gardner Earl Chapel Est.1890 Oakwood Cemetery Troy, NY

The gargoyle key rings will be available for purchase at all Friends tours and events. The price is just $10 each and, as always, the funds raised will help maintain and preserve this historic and beautiful chapel and the Oakwood Cemetery grounds. Our current supply is limited to 250 so be sure to get yours soon. If you have a friend or relative who lives out of the area, don't forget to purchase one for them too.
