Cemetery volunteers needed

The Oregon Commission on Historic Cemeteries is seeking volunteers to fill two open positions.

The commission is comprised of seven citizens who develop and maintain a listing of all pioneer and historic cemeteries in Oregon; make recommendations for funding, obtain grants funding, and seek legislative appropriations for historic cemeteries; and assist in the coordination of restoration, renovation and maintenance of historic cemeteries statewide.

The group meets four times per year in various locations around the state.

Commissioners are also asked to hold informal meetings in their regions and work on other projects outside of meeting time.

The commission is seeking representatives from the northeastern part of the state and the Portland area in particular, but all are encouraged to apply by the Sept. 15 deadline.

To apply, send a letter of interest and a resume to Kuri-Gill@oregon.gov. Include your reasons for wanting to serve on the commission, any skills or knowledge you will bring to the task, and ideas or goals you have for your participation.
