For several years the Roslyn, Ronald, Cle Elum Heritage Club has been working with cemetery commissioners and Representative Matt Manweller to secure a Capital Improvements Grant from the Department of Archeology and Historic Preservation. The grant would support our plan to build a new Interpretive Kiosk at the entrance to our historic cemeteries. The plan we envision is to build a large, covered kiosk providing a benefit to local families, while increasing historical information to visitors. Photos on the current kiosk would be retained and added to the new one.
This project will include addressing drainage issues, designing improvements to the existing parking area and implementing a landscaping plan. Total cost of the kiosk and renovation of the parking area is set at $115,000. We are applying for grant monies from several other sources, and will be implementing programs designed to raise funding needed to complete the project.
We have fulfilled our commitment to the families to clean, clear and restore most of the old lodge cemeteries in the cemetery complex and today the cemeteries are looking great! Our new kiosk will add to the pride we share in these beautiful grounds.
Anyone interested in learning more about the new kiosk and entrance improvements and how you can help make it happen with your contributions, can contact us here.
