  Aug 2, 2014 On Saturday, August 2, 2014, we have scheduled a cemetery recheck of the Elmwood Cemetery just east of Manteno (turn east at northernmost stop light on Route 50 - N900E). We'll meet at the cemetery at 9 a.m. since much of this cemetery is in sun. Bring a clipboard and red pen if you have them. There will be extra clipboards and pens plus bottled water. Please RSVP if you plan to attend.
