About the Committee

Established in 2009, the Cemetery Advisory Committee is charged with oversight of the preservation, beautification and enhancement of the Fairview/New Hope and Mt. Memorial cemeteries. 

After extensive vandalism was found in the Fairview/New Hope cemeteries in June 2009, the community rallied to help with clean up. Since then, volunteers and staff have reset and leveled hundreds of grave markers. 

In addition to financial contributions and countless volunteer hours, the cemeteries have benefited from donations of sand, pea gravel, monument compound, buckets, water and the use of heavy equipment donated to our efforts.

Volunteers Needed

The committee is currently seeking volunteers to join in the efforts for clean up events and committee members. If you are interested, please contact Tyler Bedell at 816.439.4363 or email
