How it works
The "Adopt a Grave" program is a volunteer effort to help restore the IOOF Cemetery in Sonora. A person or group can adopt a gravesite. There is no limit to the number of graves a person may adopt, nor how many people may be involved in one adoption. Each Adoption comes with a "Adoption Certificate" and a picture of the gravesite and the location. Adopting a grave is a promise to visit the gravesite periodically and take care of it. In doing so, you will also help improve the appearance of our Cemetery located at 115 Lytton Street in Sonora.
If you are unable to adopt a grave any donation is greatly appreciated and will go into our cemetery fund for the purpose of resetting stones, materials, and treatments, in addition to overall preservation.
