Courageous Kids is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping children and their families grieving the death of a significant person in their life. Through weekly support group meetings, activities and summer camp the Courageous Kids staff help facilitate the healing process. Participants can learn that they are not alone in whatever they might be experiencing. Cargivers can experience peer support and learn ways to support their children and teens. Staff uses art therapy, drama, sand play and discussion to give voice to thoughts, feelings, and remembering their loved ones. For More information about Courageous Kids, click here.
Volunteering at Luper Cemetery
The Musgrove Cemetery crews volunteered in October 2009 at Luper Cemetery, a small pioneer cemetery in North Eugene. Vandals had toppled and broken several headstones, leaving the cemetery in disarray. In addition to repairing the headstones, the staff cleared vegetation and generally cleaned up the cemetery.
A ceremony was held on November 10, 2009 at the 162nd Infantry Regiment Readiness Center in Springfield to dedicate a monument donated by Musgrove Mortuaries and Cemeteries in honor of the Oregon ROTC members of the 162nd Regiment. Battalion Commander LTC David Farley accepted the memorial on behalf of the regiment. Also in attendance were Brigadier General Norman Hoffman, US Army (Ret) and Col. Bert Toepel, US Army.
