Pet Memorial Day

On Sunday, September 11, 2022 at 1pm, Bideawee will celebrate the 50th annual National Pet Memorial Day at our Wantagh Pet Memorial Park. This annual ceremony is a loving tribute to the community’s departed companion animals and includes speakers, a candle lighting and a reading of dedications made in the memory of pets that have passed. In addition, a free guided walking tour of our Memorial Park will take place immediately following the ceremony. This year’s event will take place in-person only.
