Rapid City Works To Preserve Local Cemeteries

On Monday, the Rapid City Council received an update by Parks and Cemetery Manager Lon Van Deusen regarding the restoration of local cemeteries. According to a Rapid City Journal article, $37,550 of private donations has funded the project so far, but an estimated $10,765 is still needed to fix 50 - 70 markers.

Presently, a total of 194 monuments and markers have been reset and adjusted.
