Volunteers sought for Almarante Cemetery clean-up day, Oct. 5

A Crestview Boy Scout Troop 30 survey several years ago found nearly 2,000 graves at Almarante Cemetery.

“There’s also a bunch of graves that just aren’t marked,” Curenton said. “They had wooden markers that rotted away, or stone markers that got carried off.”

The cemetery commission also seeks volunteers and donations toward the cemetery’s upkeep, she said.
