“My Jordan School District (JSD) inherited Bingham Cemetery in 1971 mandated by state law when mining operations expanded and shut down Bingham City. They have done their best with this “Grave inheritance” but their primary focus is education, not maintenance of a cemetery. For over a decade I’ve given time, talent and service to this cemetery, … I recently presented JSD a check for more than $20,000 from this gift of love. I’ve raised nearly $30,000 for the Memorial. … It will include a new map with the GPS readings obtained plus a history, diversity, military, police officer section, grounds security and more.”
