April 2019 Cleanup Day

 

Jeff, Debbie, Kay, Steven, George, Mike, and Jeanette met on April 27th for our monthly cleaning day. We mowed, weeded, replaced flowers, and removed all of the brambles growing over the Hagedorn Rosebush. We also repainted a small portion of the fence while the weather was nice.

Lowell Herzog, a headstone conservationist, met with us  to reset Elsie Dittrich’s headstone. The entire process took about an hour and it was great for all of us to have a hand in helping. Lowell will be repairing a few more of our headstones that have been damaged over time. He’s a great guy to work with and I feel confident that our cemetery is in good hands. Be sure to check out his website to see more of his work. http://www.texasgravestoneconservation.com/

 

 

Here are some pictures of how we reset Elsie Dittrich’s headstone.
