Update from Church Grove Cemetery Company
Historic property status for Church Grove Cemetery (April 2010)

Church Grove Cemetery Company President, Robert Beck reported at the Annual Meeting of Church Grove Cemetery on April 21, 2010, that the Municipality of Annapolis County has approved the registration of the Church Grove Cemetery Church as a municipal heritage property pursuant to the Heritage Property Act.  It was moved by Ronald Baker and seconded by Jim Carter, that we accept the approval of the County and thereby register Church Grove Cemetery Church officially as a heritage property.

On August 15th, 2010, at the time of our Annual Memorial Service, a plaque and a painting of the church will be presented by the Municipality and a reception, compliments of the County will follow the service.  We will be looking forward to seeing folks come out for this historic event.
