Cemetery Headstone Cleaning and Preservation Days!

Posted on

Please join us at the first Cumberland Cemetery memorial marker preservation and cleaning days.

Tuesday, June 4, 2019 & Wednesday, June 5, 2019

9 am to noon both days

Our focus is to clean memorial markers (not the entire grave) to help preserve the markers.

Volunteers are asked to bring:

  • Drinking water (water onsite is not potable)
  • Hat and sunscreen
  • Work gloves, and/or rubber gloves when using water
  • Padded mat for kneeling
  • If you have them, your own gardening tools for cutting sod and plant growth around the markers, like a edger – you might want to mark with your initials so you don’t loose them.
  • nylon scrub brush
  • wooden or plastic spatula or scraper (no metal scrapers please)

The Village will provide a limited supply of:

  • Buckets, nylon brushes, wooden spatulas, bamboo sticks for scraping off lichen and moss
  • Non-ionic solution cleanser (safe for use on granite and marble) in spray bottles
  • Edgers, clippers, grass clippers, and loppers for cutting plant growth around markers (we will not be doing a large amount of cutting – just around markers)
  • Rags and towels
  • Non-potable water via water truck
  • Wheelbarrows and containers to collect and dispose of sod and plant growth and garbage
