Memorial Day Flowers is an opportunity for your associates to show family members that the sacrifices made by their interred loved ones are remembered.

The Foundation encourages that sponsor associates and family members participate in the laying of roses.

On May 27th, the Sunday of Memorial Day Weekend, each volunteer will carry a Sponsor Logo tote bag with a bucket with 125 roses.

Each corporate sponsor volunteer will receive a bouquet to take home. Each bouquet will be accompanied with a flower food sachet and a care handout.

Each $10,000 sponsors 100 buckets, 1 bucket contains 125  roses.


Map of the cemetery

Rhode Island Veterans Memorial Cemetery

The purpose is to allow the State of Rhode Island to provide a final resting place for Rhode Island veterans who served in the Armed Services of the United States.

This is a military cemetery of memorial design, with all grave markers placed flush with ground level. Landscaping, trees, shrubs, and floral plantings are part of the overall landscape architecture for all graves collectively, and are not solely for any individual gravesite.
