Mausoleum Association Seeks Work Volunteers
The Beecher Mausoleum Association Guardian Angles Project has scheduled three days of work at the site of the Beecher Mausoleum which has recently been declared an historical landmark.
According to Howard Paul, volunteers are needed for the project. The association would welcome help from people who can work the full time, only one day, or even for part of a day.
The work days are scheduled for Friday, Saturday and Sunday, June 12th through the 14th from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The group is undertaking a cleanup of the mausoleum itself and the grounds upon which it sits.
Volunteers should wear work gloves and if anyone can bring shovels, hoes or tools for trimming shrubbery and cutting branches out of trees, the association would appreciate the use of those tools.
The fire department is supplying enough water to pressure was the building. (editors note: the water was supplied by the Beseke family and not the fire department)
In additional to the cleanup project, the association will be holding a bake sale at the mausoleum of Saturday. People who can donate baked goods or money are asked to make the donations by noon on Saturday, the day of the sale.
Sandra Thielman, descendent of the main force in the building of the mausoleum, who has been the driving force to save it will be present.
People who wish to volunteer can find the mausoleum through the sign posted on Dixie Highway and Horner Ave. and on Indiana Ave, East of town
