Event Description:
It goes without saying that knowing how to clean a grave
marker properly can go a long way in extending the life of a memorial but how does one clean a stone? Although the cleaning of a gravestone may
seem quite simple, this is not always the case. Every time a historic stone is
cleaned, some of the stone’s surface is removed in the process. Clean it too
often, and all the inscription and details may be washed away! Bob Young,
administrator of the Evergreen Cemetery and owner of a cleaning and
restoring gravestone company, will lead participants on the proper procedures
for cleaning a gravestone. This course will be held at the Historic
Evergreen Cemetery, where Mr. Young will give demonstrations.
