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.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org no later than April 5, 2019.
