The Brevard County Veterans Cemetery in Titusville will host a ceremony at 10 a.m. Saturday to commemorate Memorial Day.
A staff member from U.S. Rep. Bill Posey's office will be the featured speaker. The event also will include the performances of patriotic songs.
After a two-year process and $65,000 in donations from businesses and individuals, the cemetery has been restored.
"We are very happy with what we have accomplished by taking this forgotten veterans' cemetery and reviving it to what it is today," said Sam DiBlasio, a Navy veteran, who president of the Friends of the Cemetery group. "Many volunteers have worked very hard for over two years."
More than 400 people have volunteered during the past two years and more than 500 donations have been made.
DiBlasio said the cemetery still is looking for donations for maintenance of the cemetery, such as for weed-and-feed, new plants and weeding by a contractor.
Donations can be made by writing checks to Friends of the Cemetery and mailing them to: Friends of the Cemetery, P.O. Box 1966, Titusville, Florida 32781.
The restoration of the cemetery has included new landscaping, fencing, benches, a paver walkway, a new aluminum entrance archway and military flags, as well as an upgraded sprinkler system and cleaning of all the graves.
The latest work was new sod that was laid by in the Sod Father company of Mims.
There are 127 veterans are buried at the cemetery at 1143 Day St.
The Titusville cemetery will not have additional burials of veterans. That's as a result of the opening of the Cape Canaveral National Cemetery in Scottsmoor, which started burials of veterans in January 2016.
