The Office of the Mayor presented
Friends of Historic Riverview Cemetery
Board of Directors
2014 Wilmington Award for Leadership
in Community Building
A cemetery has the potential to draw people together from all walks of life and all parts of the world. The Board of Directors govern every aspect of the organization and provide exceptional "boots on the ground" service, always leading by example. A Volunteer-Partnership Model is used to operate, maintain, restore, and preserve the cemetery — resulting in an expanding community of talented, dedicated, and passionate people who are inter-dependent on one another.
The impact of FHRC is visible (healthy trees, trimmed grass, repaired monuments, new flower beds); and relational in bringing people together for a common purpose. The City of Wilmington can be proud that under the leadership of the FHRC Board of Directors, this historic cemetery once again provides dignified burials in a place of beauty, peace, and honor.
Riverview Cemetery is a place where all are welcome.
