Friends of Lone Fir Cemetery needs enthusiastic volunteers for two upcoming events:
Saturday, May 12th, 2018 is Oregon Cemetery Clean Up Day. We need as many volunteers as we can get to help spruce up Lone Fir for spring as part of this state-wide eﬀort.
The shift runs from 10:00am to 12:00pm and the duties include picking up debris and weeding around headstones. Tools, training and snacks will be provided. The more hands we have the more fun it will be for everyone. This is a cooperative project between Friends of Lone Fir, METRO, and SOLVE. To sign up for this opportunity please ﬁll out the form here.
Memorial Day Weekend is May 26th, 27th, and 28th and Friends of Lone Fir needs volunteers in the cemetery all three days.
We need 12 people to help Central Catholic High School students put ﬂags on the graves of veterans from 8:30am to 12:00pm on Saturday May 26th.
On all three days we need 4 people to staﬀ a welcome table and help families ﬁnd graves from 930am to 3:45pm. We hope for volunteers to work the entire shift, but we will
take your help if you can only attend for part of that time.
Shift duties include:
- 9:30 – 10 a.m. unload information supplies, erect canopy, set up tables and chairs
- 9:45 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. staff information table: assist visitors with finding graves (records and field work)
- 12:30 – 3:15 p.m. staff information table
- 3:15 – 3:45 p.m. load tables, chairs, canopy, supplies
Lastly, we need one or two volunteers to lead the Historical Tour for guests at 11:00am,1:00pm, and 3:00pm on Monday May 28th.
