A Place of Eternal Rest

Trinity’s cemetery is cared for by a team of volunteers, some helping minimally with spring clean-up days and the annual Memorial Day Service.  A few others take on much more responsibility.  One co-manager has seen to the accuracy of the records, updating genealogy websites, working with the mortuaries and monument companies to locate and mark graves for services and burials, as well as being available for requests from people who visit our cemetery for various personal reasons.  The other co-manager helps with openings, set-up for services as well as overseeing the landscaping and maintenance needs of the property.
