headstone cleaning

Attention community members interested in beautifying historic monuments! On June 3rd, come learn about the industry’s leading products and procedures in restoring and repairing historic monuments and headstones with the Monson Cemetery Commission. We will discuss and demonstrate cleaning headstones with D2 solution and Wet N’ Forget, repositioning headstones and gluing cracks.

headstone cleaning

Time and place: Saturday, June 3rd from 9 am to about 3 pm (rain date June 10) at Hillside Cemetery in Monson, MA; it will be ‘leave as you please’ as we most likely will be engaged through the lunch hour and restrooms are not available. Bottled water will be provided and feel free to BYO snacks or lunch!

headstone cleaning

We ask that all volunteers wear closed-toe shoes and be prepared to get dirty! This event is for all ages but adult supervision is recommended for volunteers under age 16.

If you are interested in volunteering, please email: cemetery@monson-ma.gov

Our goal is to create a working group that would meet monthly and use these techniques with volunteers to restore and preserve all headstones in Monson while prioritizing historic monuments.
