With over 1,380 grave sites, 12 acres of land, roads, fences, gates, water wells, water lines and a number of trees that need to be trimmed, there is plenty to do. The interest rates being what they are today, the association cannot pay a full time employee to perform this work.
A need exists for interested volunteers, not only for labor, but also to do research on family histories and for securing grants and donations for needed projects.
“If you have a loved one that is buried in Oakwood or own a grave site for your family and are interested in keeping the cemetery in a dignified condition, we could use you help,” said James Henry, president. “The meetings are held just once each quarter. The dates and times for scheduled meetings are advertised in the County Press. Please make it a point to attend.”
