Volunteers needed to help clean up the Colerain Township Historical Cemeteries

The Colerain Township Parks Department maintains just 11 of the 29 Historic Cemeteries in Colerain Township. But these cemeteries need more that grass cutting and weed control...they need a little "love" .


Date:   Saturday, June 4, 2016

            (rain date June 11)

Time:    9:00am to 1:00pm

Where: Meet at Dunlap Cemetery

            (near Heritage Park on

              East Miami River Road)


How:     Depending on number of volunteers 4 person crews will be dispatched per cemetery to one of the Historic             Cemeteries to clean up around markers


What to bring: Gloves, gardening tools, rakes, shears, hedgers, shovels, buckets, wheel barrow, etc.


The Coleraine Historical Society is dedicated to preserving the "history" of the Township. 


We hope to make this an annual event. Won't you join us?
