Winterport Cemetery District Notice of Stone Repair
The Winterport District Board of Trustees announces that Maine Gravesite Maintenance LLC of Glenburn, Maine, will begin work in Oak Hill Cemetery in June 2020. Proprietors Stu Kallgren and Sue Dunham of MGM have trained with three of the most renowned stone conservators in the United States, learning how to assess the condition of monuments and headstones and then to clean, repair, level, and restore the stones.
MGM never uses harsh chemicals, bleach, power equipment, or pressure washers. They are proud to use the same cleaner, cleaning processes and Best Practices required by the National Park Service in caring for the headstones in Arlington National Cemetery. Their cleaner is not a hazardous material, and is safe to use around plantings.
MGM also cleans one veteran's headstone free of charge in every cemetery that they work in, and invite local residents to visit and observe anytime they are working.
This notice of cleaning is directed to any persons who may object to work being done on stones in their family lot in Oak Hill Cemetery. please contact Board Chair Edward C. Russell at firstname.lastname@example.org or 478-7879, or write to Winterport Cemetery District, PO Box 413, Winterport, Maine 04496 with any objections.
The Cemetery District sells single grave lots for a total of $500 ($250 for the lot and $250 for perpetual care.) Single grave lots may contain one casket, one casket plus one cremation urn, or two cremation urns.
