LANCASTER – The Lancaster Cemetery District Board of Trustees has rescheduled the luminary display called “A Thousand Lights, One Spirit.”
The ceremony will now begin at 4 p.m. Thursday (Dec. 27) at the Lancaster Cemetery Veterans Court of Honor, with the luminaries being lit at 4:45 p.m. beginning at the west flagpole area.
“The luminary display that we have done in conjunction with Wreaths Across America has really caught the imagination of the community,” said Cemetery Trustee Chairman, Dave Owens. “I am so grateful that Lancaster City Councilman Ken Mann has volunteered to sponsor the display in honor of his father, Clifford Mann, who served in World War II as a Staff Sergeant for the Army Air Corps. I hope many Antelope Valley residents will come out to enjoy and participate in this beautiful display.”
The luminary display was originally set to take place on the same day as the Wreaths Across America Ceremony on Dec. 15, but it had to be canceled due to inclement weather.
Thursday’s ceremony and candle lighting is open to the public, weather permitting. The community may drive or walk through the cemetery until 8 p.m.
