Please bring tools, clippers, weed whips and rakes.


This will be a special day in that students from Wyandotte schools and their teachers will join in the effort.  Please bring friends and neighbors.  Oakwood Cemetery is one of the oldest historic landmarks in the area and we need to show respect by maintaining it in good condition."
