Veterans Day Program Canceled for Rocky Gap Veterans Cemetery

October 25th, 2018 by WCBC Radio

Due to the on-going expansion project being conducted at the cemetery, the Veterans Day program that is normally conducted at 2PM on Veterans Day, November 11, 2018 will not be held. This is due to the amount of site disturbance that will impact the seating and parking areas of the cemetery. After considering the conditions likely to exist at the time, the Rocky Gap Veterans Cemetery Committee felt it best not to conduct the ceremony this Fall.

 

The unusually wet weather conditions during the past year have delayed construction progress of the expansion project on several fronts. All parties are hopeful that construction will be completed by this Spring so that our normal schedule of programs for Memorial Day and Veterans Day can resume in 2019.

 

The cemetery will be open over the Veterans Day holiday (hours 8:00 am to 4:45 pm daily) to provide family and friends the opportunity to visit the graves of veterans and enjoy the scenic Fall landscape. Additional information regarding the cemetery can be obtained by contacting the office at 301-777-2185.
