Franklin County Cemetery Society (FCCS) was
formed in May of 2006. It is a group of dedicated members interested in cemetery preservation.
Objective: The FCCS's objective is to locate, research, restore and where possible, maintain historic cemeteries in Franklin County, Missouri.
Our Focus Area: Although our namesake and primary focus is Franklin County, Missouri, we also find ourselves working on projects outside the county, if there is a need, community support and finances allow.
Members: Becoming a member is a way of showing support for the FCCS. Yearly memberships (Jan.-Dec.) are $10.00 and this fee goes toward purchasing the materials needed for preservation and repair. Our members also are volunteers who are willing to put forth a little time and effort towards these goals. Typically, work sessions are held once a month and last one to several hours. Again, all work is volunteer and you are not required to help, but our members find this very rewarding! Remember the saying, "Many hands make light work!"
Donation/Memberships: To become a member or for any sponsor donation, please send your contact information and a check payable to P.O. Box 146, Washington, MO 63090.
Meetings: Regular meetings are held on the 4th Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the Ralph Gregory Library, Washington Historical Society Museum, Washington, Missouri.
Our thanks to you for taking interest and the time to read about our endeavors. We hope you can join us.
