Name Fix-a-grave
Description You can find them everywhere in Mennonite cemeteries and graveyards. Worn out and broken gravemarkers.
Some of these mark the final resting place of some of our earliest and most prominent settlers. From some of these, literally thousands of persons throughout the area are descended.
The purpose of this group is to find persons who are interested in working together to either replace or restore these gravemarkers
Location Waterloo Region and beyond.
