PCCC's 8th Annual Memorial Celebration

  • Prairie Creek Conservation Cemetery 7204 SE County Road 234 Gainesville, FL, 32641 (map)

For those with loved ones buried at PCCC, the annual memorial gathering provides a time of remembrance and celebration. Whether you have a friend or family member buried here, or have been planning to come out for a visit, we welcome you to attend PCCC's 8th Annual Memorial Celebration. Chairs will be provided, but feel free to bring your own chair or blanket to stretch in the grass. 

We will begin gathering at 1:00 for food and a potluck, and the program will start at 2:00.

Performances will include music by Elaine Mahon, Lost Safari Drummers, and Don David. Woody Winfree, a local celebrant who has guided and cared for many families at PCCC will deliver the keynote address. Attendees with loved ones buried at PCCC will be invited to speak the name of their loved one and ring the ceremonial bell. After the program is concluded, we invite you to join us for a contemplative and meditative trail walk through the cemetery.

Golf cart tours of the cemetery will also be available throughout the day.

Many thanks to Wards and Trader Joe’s for donating food to the event.
