Gravestone Preserving Workshop

Posted on by

Caring for the graves of departed family members is a tradition for many people, especially around Memorial Day.

The Anoka County Historical Society will host a Gravestone Preservation Workshop this Saturday, May 7 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Linwood Senior Center, 22817 Typo Creek Dr.

The cost is $5 for members, $7 non-members. Tickets can be purchased in advance at the center of Linwood Town Hall. The workshop is limited to the first 25 people.

Participants will learn how to judge whether a gravestone is stable enough to clean, how to clean it, and tips on photographing grave markers.  The types of material grave markers are made from will also be discussed.

If time permits, the workshop will include some history of Linwood Cemetery, burial traditions and new ideas for remembering loved ones.
