Other local events we have supported:

Cole Funeral Chapel gives out donuts before the Memorial Day Parade in May each year.

Prior to the Chelsea Fair Parade, we have offered a free hot-dog lunch in the parking lot of the funeral home since 2014.  As always, we participate in the Chelsea Fair Parade, driving the 1916 Hearse that Don Cole owned.

We hosted and co-sponsored the Chelsea Halloween Costume Judging with the Chelsea Kiwanis Club. (2014 - 2023)

Since 2021, we have hosted Trunk or Treat in our parking lot with Chelsea Church of the Nazarene.

In November, we co-sponsor the Chelsea Community Memorial Service for all families that lost a loved one in the previous year. It is usually the Sunday before Thanksgiving. (Cancelled for 2021)

We were proud to sponsor the Chelsea Boy Scout Breakfast (2014, 2015, 2016).

Chelsea Senior Citizens (Silver Sponsor in 2013 - 2023)

Allen Cole was chosen as one of the "Men of Chelsea" in the Chelsea Library Annual Calendar (2015).  Each month, a prominent citizen was asked to highlight their favorite book, and in September, the funeral home offered free copies of "Mere Christianity" (the book Allen chose).

We have been a sponsor of the Classic Car Show at the St. Joseph Parish Festival 2015 and 2021, and will be in 2024.

In June, 2015, Don Cole took our 1916 hand-carved hearse to Chelsea's History Fest.
