The Alabama Historical Commission voted yesterday to award grants for 54 projects in 5 categories. The Old Glennville Cemetery Project was one of 15 cemetery grant projects that were approved. However, in order to fund all of the selected projects, each award will be reduced by 36% of the requested amount. Old Glennville Cemetery will receive approximately $15,880.

You will receive an official letter soon, but I wanted to go ahead and congratulate you. Feel free to pass along this good news.

All cemetery grant recipients are strongly encouraged to attend a Cemetery Preservation Workshop next Thursday, September 29, 2011 at 1 pm at Pine Hill Cemetery in Auburn to discuss proper cemetery preservation techniques for cleaning and repair. Every cemetery grant recipient must adhere to the AHC’s guidelines for cleaning and repair and will be required to apply for an AHC Cemetery Permit before any eligible grant related work can begin.

Pine Hill Cemetery is located at the intersection of Armstrong Street and Hare Avenue in Auburn, near the main campus of Auburn University. Please contact me if you need directions.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Again, congratulations and thank you for your dedication to preserving Alabama’s historic cemeteries.
