We have a sacred trust with our Churchyard and Cemetery. Loved ones from long ago and recent past are buried in holy ground.
A short stroll around the ground will reveal gravestones
that are broken, lying flat on the grass; some stones have shifted, and grave markers and gravestones have sunk below grade. Some monuments have been cleaned improperly and have been damaged. Others need a good proper cleaning to be rid of dirt, lichens, moss and other biological life that attacks the surface.
In addition, loved ones at times decorate the memorials with plants, trees, shrubs, plastic flowers and other items that are not approved according to cemetery rules.
We’re looking for a few people interested in restoration, preservation and history. We are hoping to have people interested in learning about the proper care and maintenance of a
historic site, and being trained to assist as needed. In the event that you would like to serve with this group, please call Joan in our Church Office.
