MEMORIAL SERVICES

At times we conduct memorial services for residents or former residents of Holiday Village.

The Activity Club at Holiday Village does not conduct or sponsor memorial services.

We do not charge for our services, but we do accept a donation if you choose.

Arrangements need to be made with the Holiday Village office

to make certain the facilities are available when you want to hold a service.

Any refreshments, programs or other expenses are the responsibility of those sponsoring the service.

If we are involved, we expect the service to honor the Lord Jesus Christ.
