As the season of Thanksgiving approaches, we hope you’ll receive Fairlawn’s end-of-year letter with awareness of the deep gratitude we have for your support, concern, and care for our beloved cemetery, Stillwater’s historic landmark of peace and beauty since at least 1886.
If you’ve visited Fairlawn lately, you are aware that it has never looked better, thanks to Sexton Mike and his crew and Landscaping Chair Bonnie Petty and her crew. You also may have seen the construction site for our new Columbarium Plaza which will be one of the most beautiful in Oklahoma. This is your invitation to come to see the happenings at Fairlawn!
Also, here are a few more news items and opportunities:
“Wreaths Across America at Fairlawn” - Wreath-laying, calling each veteran by name and thanking them for their service, will take place at 11 am on Saturday, December 18. We are nearing our goal to be able to purchase a beautiful live Balsam wreath for every veteran (1,472) buried at Fairlawn. Please consider sponsoring this event ($300, $500, $1,000, or $1500+) and/or purchasing one or more wreaths for only $15 each. Donations are tax-deductible.
Columbarium niches, each holding two urns, are discounted 20% until construction of the columbarium is complete. Contact Sexton Mike if you are interested: 405-372-8603.
“Friends of Fairlawn” - 2022 memberships are due for this important support group. Tax-deductible donations are still only $15 per individual, $25 per family or group, and $150 per business.
