Monies from the grant will be used to hold a one-day Cemetery Restoration Workshop on Saturday, September 10, in Center Point from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
The morning session will be held in the Clay County Genealogy Library at 309 Main Street and will include information from Jeannie Regan-Dinius of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, who will explain the Indiana Codes relating to county cemeteries and the responsibilities of local officials.
