Huge THANK YOU for Donors to Cemetery Care & Aid Program!

We have so many thank yous and acknowledgements to offer this  – combined with a SNEAK PEEK at some of the cemetery repairs and cleaning that’s been completed!

Please join us in offering a special & enormous THANK YOU to those who have donated to the DCHS Historic Cemetery Care & Aid Program.

(We are also working on a photo album of photos of the volunteers and everyone who has helped with cemetery work this summer, which continues to grow!)


So far this summer, we’ve held an open volunteer cleaning session at Fahlun Lutheran Cemetery near Nelson, MN, organized and provided supplies for Minnesota’s 48 State Tour Public Workshop at Kinkead Cemetery here in Alexandria, MN, and hosted the Northern Bedrock Historic Preservation Corps for a 9-day hitch completing further restoration, cleaning, & repair work at Kinkead Cemetery – and there’s more projects in the works!

We’d like to offer our sincerest thanks to:
