Alfred Bromelsick Memorial at Oak Hill Cemetary

Join us for a simple, yet meaningful 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 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.
