Due to concerns around COVID-19, NALP recently announced its Renewal and Remembrance ceremony this year would be canceled.?
For 25 years, the event honored America’s veterans as landscapers lended their? skills to care for and beautify Arlington National Cemetery. The following is a statement from NALP:?
It is because of the incredible impact of this event that we’ve taken the deliberations very seriously around how?and when to host Renewal & Remembrance 2020 in light of COVID-19. Arlington National Cemetery is currently closed to the public and although they may be open in July, they do not anticipate being able to host large events this summer. As a result, we have?made the difficult decision to cancel Renewal & Remembrance and Legislative Days for 2020.
However, Arlington National Cemetery has indicated that NALP will likely be able to host a small ceremony this summer?in honor of those buried at Arlington National Cemetery, and to highlight the lasting impact our industry has made on the grounds. We hope to be able to livestream this ceremony to all of you. We will share details once confirmed.
On behalf of the Renewal & Remembrance Committee, the NALP staff, and the Board of Directors, we will miss working?side by side this summer. We thank all of the sponsors and volunteers who stood ready, willing, and able to come together for a great cause.
The next Renewal & Remembrance will be held on Monday, July 19, 2021 - mark your calendars now. And, look for news?about our Legislative Days on the Hill, which will be held in conjunction with our Workforce Summit in late winter/early spring of 2021.
