Galien Township Cemetery Committee
Notice Regarding Periodic Cemetery cleanups:
The Cemetery Committee performs two cleanups per year, one in the late Spring and one the late fall. The purpose is to cleanup debris and old decorations. Please see the Calendar of Events on the main page for times of these cleanups.
The Cemetery Advisory Committee meets during the Spring through Fall months on the third Monday of each month at the Township Office at 7:00pm. See calendar of events on main page for meeting schedule. Ms. Jennifer Richter leads this Committee. Members of this Committee are serving on a volunteer basis.
In addition to the periodic administrative meetings, the Committee spent five afternoons in the summer and fall of 2016 clearing overgrown volunteer trees and debris from the grounds. Over 125 hours have been donated by the volunteers for this purpose.
The Committee continues to identify, prioritize and perform further improvements to the Cemetery, as a symbol of respect for the loved ones that have been laid to rest there.
Special thanks go out to the following groups and individuals who have helped:
