Rockgate Cemetery, just south of downtown Crozet, is seeking volunteers to serve on its board of directors. The 10-acre burial ground, established in 1914, is not affiliated with a church and is the resting place of many Crozet families.

It was managed for many years by Alan Rosenkrans, and when he died, care passed to his family members, Charles and Fran Witt and their son, Chuck.

The board meets once a year and its duties include oversight of maintenance and, soon, the expansion of the available area for plots as the cemetery is rapidly filling up.
