​​​​​​Marker Cleaning Workshop – CEMETERY

September 18 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

- Free

A very Interesting and rewarding Volunteer Project

Many grave markers are covered in moss, lichen, dirt and with time, have darkened and become quite difficult to read. Our goal is not to make them look new again, rather to help preserve them for future generations by removing foreign matter that can retain moisture which can cause the stone to crack with our annual freeze and thaw cycle. Please plan to join us and learn the latest techniques and tools to safely clean these stones. This is a hands-on workshop so dress accordingly. Since this project began in 2013, volunteers have cleaned a total of 955 grave markers, along with curbing and urns, a very impressive number. You may want to bring a stool to sit on while working, sun screen and a hat. All the cleaning tools and supplies along with detailed instructions are provided. Meet at the Sexton’s Tool House, top of the Cemetery Road, for instructions and to pick up supplies. For additional information or questions, call 541 826-9939 or email info@friendsjvillecemetery.org
