Volunteer work last year concentrated on locating and raising new burial markers,
lifting and resetting markers already raised and filling sink holes in both the Old
and New Cemeteries. So far over 1260 markers have been located and raised.
If you are interested in participating in our work days and would like to be sent
a reminder closer to the dates, please contact us.
Volunteers uncovering burial markers in the Old Cemetery.
Work days for this year will run April through October. The first work days in April
and May will prepare for this year’s annual Memorial Ceremony; work days after May
will concentrate on the area at the back of the old cemetery.
We would like to do some archaeological work in the oldest corner of the old cemetery
and have suggested to students and staff from the University of Toledo Anthropology
Department that they help us with this.
