Alfred Bromelsick Memorial at Oak Hill Cemetary

Join us for a simple, yet well meaning service project. Annually, we honor Alfred Bromelsick who, upon his death in 1950, left his estate to the youth of Lawrence through the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and 4-H.

One of these three youth organizations is in charge of the memorial each year, and will present a short meaningful program. Members of each group and guests are encouraged to bring flowers from their garden to leave at Mr. Bromelsick’s grave site. The ceremony will be about 15 minutes.
