As our list of projects continues to grow and our wish list gets bigger, so does our need for volunteers. Volunteering in the cemetery and for the Friends of Jacksonville's Historic Cemetery, is a very rewarding experience. No matter what your experience, skills, interest or abilities we have something for you to do. It is a great way to get to know your community and its history, have some fun, and make a few new friends.
