OHRP contributions help to improve the overall appearance of Oak Hill Cemetery by providing the funds needed to clean headstones, plant perennials, and continue beautification projects. We welcome all to come help on scheduled cleaning dates.

Currently OHRP does not have a 501c3  profit status, however over the 8 or so years we have been working as a grass roots organization, we have most definitely spent and donated much much more out of our own pockets and out of our own children's summer funds than can be counted!  We are very much interested in becoming a 501c3 in the near future, and hopefully bringing additional grant money for the cemetery's continued clean up.

 

The supplies purchased with any donations are D2 stone cleaner (close to $50 a gallon), Orvus horse shampoo diluted to clean stones, buckets, soft bristle brushes, gloves and water sprayers.

 

Any additional funds will be given to Patty Wolfe, Oak Hill Manager, to help off-set her fundraiser for a Tri-pod to help lift and reset headstones.  They have been trying to raise funds for one of these for several years now.

 

Another cleaning season is upon us and we are eager to get back out there!  Thank you for your continued support!  It's been 8 years since we've taken initial photos of ALL the headstones at Oak Hill.... we are likely going to start taking photos again to show all of the improvements and to show everyone what hard work does and to KEEP the momentum moving forward!
