Fostering a Grave Site
What does fostering entail? Weeding and replanting or providing occasional flowers; general tidy-up; cleaning gravestones; remarking the borders around graves; and most important, doing a little research to learn about the person where possible. Training is provided. Seasonal residents are welcome to participate as we can connect two or more foster families on each grave site!
Here are the grave sites in need of foster families with a brief background from our historic preservationist, Maggie Lea:
