Sarasota National Cemetery Will Be New Model To Follow

Sarasota National Cemetery

While it isn’t obvious at this point in time by looking at the largely untouched 295 acres of former ranchland off of Clark Road, also known as State Road 72, over the course of the next couple of years this site is going to go through a huge building and transformation process which will result in a “showplace” if one can refer to a cemetery that way.  It seems fitting that our veterans should be honored with nothing less!  This is thanks to a group of local philanthropists who are going to see that millions of dollars are spent in making this what will become the model for other national cemeteries in the country.  One of the most intriguing features will be the massive amphitheater available for special events able to seat up to 2500 guests.  Also in the plan will be a wonderful art element including sculptures, statues and mosaics onto the hallowed grounds.
