VALDOSTA – The City of Valdosta will honor Veterans during the Fall Veteran’s Day Headstone Cleaning event.


On Saturday, November 5, 2022, at Sunset Hill Cemetery, from 9 am to 12 pm, the City of Valdosta’s Public Works Department is holding its Fall Veteran’s Day Headstone cleaning to show appreciation for our courageous veterans who have passed on.

Over time, headstones can become grimy from their constant outdoor exposure. Rain and humidity cause mold to accumulate on the stone, making it difficult to read. This event helps the legibility of the headstones so people can read the information. Many brave men and women fight for our freedom every day, and it is vital to show our gratitude for their sacrifice, which continues after these real-life superheroes are no longer with us. Thus, the bi-annual Veteran’s Headstone Cleaning Event.
