New columbarium in Rolla nearly completed

It’s shaped in the form of a grain elevator, which Cemetery Board member Ruth Veiner says is a nod to the area’s history. 

“The grain elevator design is a tribute to the farming in the area and the early pioneers,” she explains. “It also makes environmental sense to build this type of structure to serve the area people. 

The project was made possible by funding from the Peace River Regional District, which provided $30,000 towards the $41,000 cost.
