Area Event: Memorial Wall and Meditation Garden Dedication

On Saturday September 4, 2010 the Chinese Historical Society of Southern California will host the dedication of the Memorial Wall and Meditation Garden at the Los Angeles County Crematorium. The Wall was built to remember the over 13,000 Angelenos that were buried in the former county cemetery prior to 1923. We will also be remembering the recently reburied ancestors that were removed from their graves during the building of the light rail Gold line.
