Latest News for the Old Burying Ground - Greenfield, Highland County, Ohio -- Next Work Session - August 10th, 2018

Summer is moving along rather quickly!  But we still have most of August left to make the most of it!
~*~*~*~*~
So, it is time to announce the next hands-on cemetery preservation / restoration / conservation session at Greenfield's Old Burying Ground:
~*~*~*~*~
***Friday, August 10th beginning at 7:30a.m.**
~*~*~*~*~
The hard-working volunteers of the Greenfield Historical Society are now in their 5th year of cleaning, repairing, and re-setting grave markers at this beautiful early Ohio Cemetery called "The Old Burying Ground".  It is conveniently located adjacent to the Traveller's Rest building.  
~*~*~*~*~
The entire area is steeped in local history that anyone can immerse themselves into.  Some of it had been hidden at the cemetery; now being discovered!
~*~*~*~*~
The Old Burying Ground is being brought back to life one tombstone at a time -- one row of tombstones at a time; due to a steady progress quite readily apparent, even to a casual observer, as the volunteers move through the cemetery's grounds conducting their meticulously methodical work.  
~*~*~*~*~
The good news is that serious-minded volunteers are welcomed to join them!  
~*~*~*~*~
So, if you have been looking to volunteer at an Ohio cemetery before this summer ends, this is the  ongest-running one, and I feel the best one to consider joining!  
~*~*~*~*~
So, mark your calendars for Friday, August 10th, 2018 -- start time is 7:30a.m.!
