Highland Memory Gardens Cemetery is pleased to announce that the Iowa Military Veterans Band will be performing a patriotic concert in front of the Tower of Memories on Sunday, July 1, 2018 at 2:00 p.m.

Established in 1996 to perform at the dedication of the World War II Memorial at the Iowa State Capitol, the band is composed of accomplished volunteer musicians representing all branches of the US military. The mission of the Iowa Military Veterans Band is to musically salute military veterans and their organizations and to play for the enjoyment of the general public. The Band performs a yearly Veteran’s Day concert at the Civic Center entitled, “Star Spangled Salute to Veterans”.

Mark your calendars to join us for this great event! Bring your lawn chairs for an enjoyable afternoon at the Tower.

Everyone attending the concert (18-years and older) will be eligible for a drawing for two full-sized cemetery spaces at Highland Memory Gardens. The drawing will take place at the close of the concert and you must be present to win.

The Cemeterian's Creed

I assist people with something that they really don't want, but they need, and cannot do without, as it brings them solace and comfort. Families invest their futures with me. I provide for eternity that one single place that offers comfort and peace. I am the caretaker of a sacred place, a place they come to for reflection and prayer. They are counting on me. I keep families together forever and ever. I am the necessary link joining their "here" and "hereafter."

Yes, my work is meaningful. In the most singular sad event of their life — my service is critical to them. They have placed their trust in me. I am your cemeterian.
