May 4 – Headstone Cleaning at Oakview Cemetery in Royal Oak

Royal Oak, MI- The R.O. Memorial Society is asking for volunteers to help clean Veterans graves at Oakview Cemetery at 1032 N Main S.

We are asking for Students, scout troops, Church groups, anyone who would like to help.

We clean away the grass from the headstones & wipe them clean.  We will be doing this on May 4th & 11th at 10am.  We will meet just inside the cemetery just passed the pond. You can stay as long as you like.  Bring tools with you to help clean around the headstone.  Weedwacker works very well.  Brooms or rags help with cleaning off the headstones after removing the grass.

Also, save the date of May 25th at 10am, we will be placing flags on our Veterans graves.  Everyone is welcome.  We will supply the flags.

Hope you can join us, the more we have the more headstones we can get too.
