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" .

Time:    9:00am to 1:00pm

Where: Meet at Dunlap Cemetery

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.
