Green Lawn to honor fallen police officers

Police officers killed in the line of duty and who are buried at Green Lawn will be recognized Nov. 3 at the First Saturday at Green Lawn program.

Members of the Fraternal Order of Police will lead the program that includes a history of the Columbus Division of Police and a tribute to those killed in the line of duty in a program called “They Served to Protect Us.”

First Saturday at Green Lawn will be held at 11 a.m. in the Huntington Chapel at Green Lawn, 1000 Greenlawn Ave. The program, presented by the Green Lawn Volunteers, celebrates the lives of people buried at the state’s second-largest cemetery who had an impact on life in central Ohio. It is free and open to the public.

Refreshments will be served and tours will be offered.

Green Lawn, established in 1848 as a nonprofit association, has grown from its original 83 acres to 360 today with 80 acres yet to be developed. Nearly 150,000 people have been interred there in the past 159 years.
