The FCCPA Mission

The cemetery association’s mission is to identify, document, preserve, protect, maintain and advocate for cemeteries in our county that are threatened by development, vandalism or neglect. Also, the association educates the community about the historical importance of cemeteries and how to survey and preserve cemeteries.
