The Clarke County Cemetery Association conducts workshops, repairs stones, and works to preserve Clarke County cemeteries. They work with trustees to ensure our cemeteries get the care and preservation they need. Members also attend meetings of the State Association for the Preservation of Pioneer Cemeteries. They learn of ways to work with local officials, fund raising techniques, and legislative efforts to preserve Iowa's cemeteries. They continue to need donations to purchase the epoxy and other supplies used in their restoration work, but even more importantly, they need many more volunteers. It isn't difficult work...please join them. These are the graves of your ancestors! For more information contact:
