I?would like to remind people that Memorial Day is coming up. The Friends of Olney will again be helping with the grave flags, and will help find graves on Memorial Day weekend. We will have extra flags by the cemetery office and mausoleum for any graves that get missed. Please remember, this is done by all-volunteer groups: the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Friends of Olney and (if we are lucky) high school students.

We will be meeting at the cemetery office, 865 Tutuilla Road, May 18 at 7 p.m. to work on details and a volunteer list. This meeting is open to anyone who would like to get involved with making Olney Cemetery a better place.

If you are unable to make the meeting but would like to help with the flags, or during the weekend of Memorial Day, call 541-276-8250.
