Cemetery receives support from community after storms roll through


ZIONSVILLE, Ind. (WISH) — The cemetery in Zionsville we told you about on Wednesday is getting some help with clean up.

24-Hour News 8 talked with the caretaker today.

He says people have donated their time and equipment to the Union Lutheran Cemetery.

Headstones and trees in the cemetery were toppled after a tornado rolled through on Monday night.

The cemetery dates back to the early 1800’s.

The cemetery set up a time on Saturday for volunteers to help, but some people just wanted to do what they could right now.

“A young man brought his company truck out with a mulcher and mulched up a huge pile of tree limbs. And it’s been a tremendous help because we got sections of the cemetery picked up and cleaned up enough that I can get the mower out and start mowing again,” said David Milender with Union Lutheran Cemetery Association.

Milender says he’s had people from all over the area helping out and that it’s nice to know that people care.
