For nearly a quarter of a century, landscape and lawn care professionals have gathered together at Arlington National Cemetery for Renewal & Remembrance, the largest day of service in the industry.

This year’s event was, unfortunately, canceled due to COVID-19.  

On Monday, July 20 in place of the large-scale event that would have taken place, the National Association of Landscape Professionals held a small closed ceremony and tree planting with remarks by NALP President, Andrew Ziehler, and ANC Superintendent, Mr. Charles “Ray” Alexander, Jr. 

The following people were also on hand to represent the hundreds of volunteers who would have participated in this year’s volunteer service event: past Chairs of Renewal & Remembrance Bruce Allentuck, Phil Fogarty, and Walter Wray; current Vice-Chair, Eric Gilbey; current Chair, John Eggleston; and NALP CEO, Britt Wood.   

“We are humbled that Arlington National Cemetery is joining together with us to honor the work that the industry has done in service to one of our nation’s most sacred landscapes,” said NALP CEO, Britt Wood.

This year’s Renewal & Remembrance ceremony and video (show below) were produced through the support of NALP's partners ExMarkGravelyNew HollandJohn DeereSiteOne, and STIHL
