The Cooper Cemetery Committee will be starting up again as soon as the weather permits.  Last year Karen Holmes applied to the Maine Old Cemetery Association (MOCA) for a class to help us learn about restoring, maintaining, and preserving our Cooper cemeteries.  MOCA has contacted Karen to schedule this class for the spring and they are currently looking at dates.  Anyone wishing to participate in the Cooper Cemetery Committee in our search for historic stones or those wishing to take part in the class should contact Karen Holmes or Bill Krider.  Let us all wish for an early spring so we can get back to our walks in Cooper to search for these old grave sites.
