Cleaning and Preserving Gravestones Hands-on Workshop
At Howland Hall, Westport Point United Methodist Church
1912 Main Road, Westport Point
Ted Kinnari, owner of D/2 Biological Solutions, will conduct a workshop featuring Rusty Brenner, gravestone cleaner and preservation expert. Mr. Brenner will discuss the basics of cleaning and preservation and will demonstrate the process of cleaning stones with D/2 biological solution, which is not harmful to the stones nor the environment. Hands on training will take place at the Westport Point Cemetery. D/2 Biological Solution and water will be supplied.
It is hoped that some of the attendees who are trained will become trainers themselves of volunteer groups that will elect to clean gravestones at the town cemeteries of Beech Grove, Linden Grove and Maple Grove. It will also be possible to clean stones in other smaller burial plots around Westport.
Attendance is limited to 35 persons. Pre-registration required.
