Volunteers

The cemetery depends on its volunteer Board of Directors who oversees all aspects of the cemetery including hiring the superintendent who, in turn, hires maintenance staff, meets with people interested in purchasing the right to interment, interacts with funeral directors, etc.The Board makes policy decisions, does long-range planning, oversees finances and works to increase community awareness of Kennebunk’s beautiful, historic Hope Cemetery.

 

Long range plans include rallying groups of volunteers to help involve the community in events such as a “stone cleaning day” in the Old Burying Ground, planting spring bulbs, fund-raising, entering genealogy information into a database and writing historically interesting stories about some of the people interred in the cemetery.

 

Collaboration between the Cemetery and the Brick Store Museum includes an All Souls’ Walk with local volunteers role-playing historic characters interacting with the public and telling their stories on the Saturday before Halloween.
