Volunteers Make a Difference...Again!!

Volunteers gathered at the Old Burying Ground adjacent Travellers Rest on August 9, 2014, for another work day to clean and repair gravestones. Led by Scott Andersen, he was joined by Harold Schmidt, Patsy Smith, Gloria and Jim Losey, John King, Venus Andersen, Shirley Shields and Phil Harewood for a few hours to work on gravestones. Stopping by for a visit were Linda Limes Ellis, and her husband Ron. They were visiting the area for the weekend from Lyndhurst, Ohio. Linda has a blog, www.limesstones.blogspot.com that deals with cemetery preservation and restoration here in Ohio.

The pictures below give you an idea of the condition of many before repair and how they looked afterwards. More sessions will be planned for the future to continue this massive effort. If you would like to participate, give the Society a call.
