Ballard-Durand Funeral & Cremation Services has taken the initiative to provide families with a 40 ft. x 50 ft. event canopy to hold traditional funeral services, celebrations of life, wake, or memorial receptions outdoors.
“Our new Canopy of Ceremony gives families the opportunity to celebrate and remember their loved ones in a different environment outside of a place of worship or the funeral home.”
– Owner, Matthew Fiorillo CFSP
In adhering to the current CDC and federal regulations on gatherings, Ballard-Durand’s Canopy of Ceremony will allow friends and family members to attend a funeral service or reception while maintaining 6 ft. social distancing.
“Open air (funeral) services and receptions outside of a facility is a growing trend. We wanted to give families who’ve preplanned their arrangements and families who are in immediate need a new and innovated option to celebrate, remember and begin the healing process in a different fashion; we’ve done just that.”
