Recently and just in time for Memorial Day, the Camano Lutheran Cemetery Board commissioned a new monument at its entry. The old sign had finally deteriorated beyond saving or fixing, road improvements needed to be made and new landscaping and plantings were added. Cemetery Board members are a group of four volunteers who manage burials as well as all improvements and documentation such places require.
The improvements were funded through many donations of time and money by community members and with assistance from the Washington State Historic Cemetery Grant Program. For a complete list of contributors and more details about the extent of the project, please see this pdf of the report CamanoLutheranCemetery 2019. The Camano Lutheran Cemetery is located on a hillside and is a quiet place for contemplation and solace. You may visit any time and tours will be given during the Stanwood Camano Historic Sites tour on Sept 19.
