Peninsula Township Clerk Becky Chown sent along a note that the Township is looking for residents interested in serving on a cemetery advisory committee. The committee will address challenges and opportunities at the three Township-owned, non-denominational cemeteries:

Peninsula Township Cemetery. Located on Peninsula Drive between Seven Hills Road and Kroupa Road, this is the newest and largest cemetery in the township and has a standard layout with lots marked at the corners with circular, in-ground, stainless steel plaques. These plaques are flush with the landscape and delineate the lot number and corner. In addition to the regular cemetery, this cemetery also contains a green cemetery section and a pet cemetery section. A memorial forest and columbarium have been proposed, but neither has been established to date.

Old Mission Gazette is Reader Supported.

Ogdensburg Cemetery. Located on the corner of Center Road and Ladd Road, there are currently no lots available for sale here, but the clerk maintains a waiting list should a current deedholder wish to sell a plot.

Bohemian Cemetery. Located on Neahtawanta Road between Kroupa Road and Shipman Road, there are currently no lots available for sale here, but the clerk’s office maintains a waiting list if a current deedholder wishes to sell a plot.

Anyone interested in serving on the cemetery advisory committee should email Becky at [email protected] no later than April 5, 2019.

SUPPORT YOUR INDEPENDENT LOCAL NEWSPAPER: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers and magazines like the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So I started my own newspaper.

Because Old Mission Gazette is a "Reader Supported Newspaper" -- meaning it exists because of your financial support -- I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks our way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the OMP. In a time when local news is becoming a thing of the past, supporting an independent community newspaper is more important now than ever. Thank you so much for your support! -Jane Boursaw, Editor/Publisher, Old Mission Gazette
