Event Details

Join the Maple Ridge Museum in a unique and rewarding project, preserving headstones at the Maple Ridge cemetery. Many of the older headstones no longer have individuals to care for them; therefore you can help to preserve these reminders of our community’s roots.

This event is for people who are passionate about history, volunteering, and community restoration. Many of the older headstones no longer have individuals to care for them. Spend the morning in the park cleaning headstones and clearing grass to preserve the precious history in Maple Ridge Cemetery.

If you would like to volunteer, please signup at http://signup.com/go/dySQUrb or contact the Maple Ridge Museum at mrmeventplanner@gmail.com.

  • Depending on the weather, rain gear or sunglasses, sunscreen, and a hat
