Cemetery Committee

We need a new chairperson!

The Cemetery Committee was formed to update records, find burials, map the cemeteries, mark the new area of Pinckney Cemetery and put the records in electronic format.  We have done a great deal of work and have much more to do.  However, our chairperson has moved away and we need a new chairperson to lead our group.  If you have cemetery interest, please contact the Township to join us as a worker or take charge as the chairperson.  Email:  keenetwp@gmail.com or zoningadmin@msn.com
