Cemetery seeks input

By on March 12, 2009

Blackberry Township Cemetery is seeking community input regarding how to celebrate the cemetery 150th anniversary.

Fred Dornback, cemetery superintendent and sexton, will host a meeting on Saturday, March 28, at 9:30 a.m. at the Blackberry Township Hall, 43W390 Main Street Road in Elburn. The purpose of this exploratory meeting is to see if there is community interest in having a special celebration in conjunction with the 150th anniversary in spring/summer 2010.

The exploratory committee will meet for no more than 90 minutes to determine if, when, where and how the community might commemorate this special occasion in history. Coffee, tea, juice and morning snacks will be provided.

If interested, call the cemetery office at (630) 365-6089 or e-mail us at cemetary@blackberrytwp.com.
