Gravestone Cleaning Workshop Sept 27

From the DACA Villager:
The Maryland Chapter of the Association of Gravestone Studies will present a Gravestone Cleaning Workshop at All Hallows Chapel Cemetery 864 Central Avenue, Davidsonville, MD, 
Saturday, September 27, 2014.   Sign in at 8:30 a.m. No cost, no fees.  Class starts at 9:00 am and concludes at 2:00 pm
Participants will meet at All Hallows Chapel, just east of Lakemont Memorial Gardens on Central Avenue in  Davidonville. Sign-in starts at 8:30 a.m. The workshop  will begin at 9:00 a.m. and continue until 2:00 p.m.  This workshop is for anyone who loves cemeteries 
and history. You do not have to be a member to attend!

Our goal is to teach the use of the D2 product to clean  gravestones without damaging them.

There is no charge for this workshop. You should  bring a kneeling pad and dress in gardening casual  clothes; appropriate for the weather and getting wet and  dirty. We will meet at the chapel for a short orientation;  materials on cleaning and D2 will be provided. Several  stones in the graveyard have been selected for cleaning  and everyone will have hands-on experience in the  process.

This is a great cemetery to visit, with fascinating  gravestones commemorating local families.

In order to adequately plan for supplies and food,  please RSVP by September 20th. to Melvin Mason at
