Volunteer Preservation in Granville's Old Colony Burying Ground

Saturday, June 9, 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 noon.

Come lend a hand as volunteers help preserve Granville's most historic site, the Old Colony Burying Ground. We'll be cleaning, straightening, resetting, and repairing the fragile 19th-century headstones that testify to Granville's earliest days. 

No special skills are required -- we'll show you what to do, and we'll provide equipment, tools, cleaning agents, even work gloves. Coffee, breakfast goodies, water, and juices will also be provided.

Questions?  Call or email Lyn Boone (740-587-4728, BooneL@Denison.edu). Your interest and help are greatly appreciated!
