It is time to sign up for our 8th Annual Cemetery Restoration Workshop. This year the clinic will be held Friday, June 3rd, 2016, from 9 am to 4 pm at the Wesley Chapel Cemetery. The cemetery is between Pleasant Plain and Blanchester on State Route 28 at the intersection of Morrow Woodville Road (County Road 24). The first known burial occurred here in 1840.
WESLEY CHAPEL, HARLAN TOWNSHIP
The Wesley Methodist Episcopal Church was organized about 1846, by Jacob Jackson, Joshua Thompson and others. The church was situated near Level, in Harlan Township, and was one of the most active country societies in the county, with a large membership.
Workshop attendees will spend a full day in the cemetery learning the proper techniques of cemetery restoration and repair ~ identifying, cleaning & repairing grave markers. This year’s program will again be presented by the Graveyard Groomer from Connersville, Indiana. The cost of this all day event is only $40 per person and includes a picnic lunch and a workbook that normally sells for $10.
