GA cemetery preservation conference in NOV
The Georgia Historic Preservation Division will be conducting a
state-wide conference about cemetery preservation in Augusta on Nov.
1 and 2 (Thursday and Friday). There will be speakers and workshops
from about noon on Thursday until about noon on Friday. There will
probably be tours of historic cemeteries in Augusta on Friday
afternoon for those interested.
I am planning to attend. Then I will drive to Columbus and we can
hold a CFCPL membership meeting on Saturday Nov. 3 or Sunday Nov. 4.
Is anyone else in the group interested and available to attend the
conference? For the conference, there will be a registration fee
that Christine Neal (Archaeology Program Director) says should be
fairly low. As soon as details are finalized, information about the
conference will be posted on the the Georgia Historic Preservation
Division webpage, linked at:
I am planning to come to Columbus before then, possibly on Labor Day
weekend - or if not, then mid-to-late August. We won't be having a
formal group meeting at that time, but I would like to get together
with anyone who would like to meet and visit. We'll be going out to
the cemetery site to check conditions and police for litter.
I would like to hear from anyone who thinks they may be able to
attend the conference or would like to meet in Columbus when I am
there in AUG/SEP and/or in NOV.
