SCATTER DAY 2023
Did you know, one in five Americans has cremated remains in their home, with no plans to memorialize? After a cremation, many families have no plans to place their loved one in a cemetery, memorialize in a decorative urn or scatter at their loved one's favorite spot.
Fairmount Memorial Association's Free Scattering Day is an opportunity for families to have their loved ones' remains legally and permanently established, completely free of charge!
Join Fairmount Memorial Association at Fairmount Memorial Park:
Friday, September 22nd, 2023

WHO IS "SCATTER DAY" DESIGNED FOR?
Scattering Day is designed for persons of all denominations and faiths who currently are storing a loved one's cremated remains, but find it has become more and more difficult to properly honor and care for the urn. For families planning a move and other major life events, priorities require a change in plan. Of course, it's also a great way for families who don't have a budget for interment to take advantage of this once a year, free program to lay their loved's remains to rest in a dignified manner.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
There is no cost to take advantage of this once a year opportunity. The normal price for this service is $295.00.
Fairmount Memorial Association will work with you to complete required paperwork to comply with interment laws and regulations. Cremated remains will be scattered in a community ossuary at Fairmount Memorial Park.
CAN I GET A PLAQUE FOR MY LOVED ONE?
Yes! However, there is an additional cost for this. Let us know that you are interested in this and we will provide you with a range of choices and different prices to consider.
WHAT ELSE SHOULD I KNOW?
RSVP is required as we have limited capacity to support multiple families at the same time, so please contact us early so that you can arrange your spot. Additionally, there is paperwork that is legally required for the internment process (again, as mentioned above, there is no charge for this service on Scatter Day) so expect to meet with us prior to Scatter Day to complete all of the legal arrangements.
If you have any more questions or special requests, please let us know.
