Once again, area Pagans gather at Ft. Snelling to honor Sgt. Jason Schumann and Specialist Daniel Schrankler as part of a Memorial Day observance. Other fallen soldiers are also remembered and honored in a ceremony at their gravesites at Fort Snelling National Cemetery in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The ritual is conducted by Joe and Tracy Jarvinen and their family.
- Monday, May 30 · 10:00am – 1:00pm
- Fort Snelling National Cemetery in Minneapolis, Minnesota
- For more information about the ritual, contact email@example.com
Jarvinen requests that people arrive at Sgt. Schumann’s grave by 10 am. The ceremony includes the speaking of his name and the placing of flowers. Participants are invited to bring one or more fresh flowers to place at each soldier’s grave and Pentacle headstone.
There will be a potluck following the ceremony. Pagans of all paths are invited to take part in the ritual.

Thank you Cara for posting this so that those who were unaware of this taking place, now are.
This event is scheduled to begin at 10:00 am. It was discovered today that Ft. Snelling has a public ceremony also starting at 10:00 a.m. This was not posted when we scheduled our event. Apologies for the inconvenience. Traffic may be heavy. Please plan accordingly.
