Directions to Cemetery

We will meet at Old City Cemetery at 12:00 noon on December 19, 2020.  The cemetery is located at the corner of Rector St. and Degolia St. which is two blocks from downtown Placerville.  It will take about 15 minutes to say the names of the veterans, describe the history known about some of them, and lay wreaths on their graves.  Thereafter we will convoy two miles to the Uppertown Cemetery (School St. west of the Lutheran church) to lay wreaths on the veteran graves there.  We should be done by 1:00 PM (total time approximately 60 minutes).
