January 2017 Update

First post of the New Year! Today's warm weather got me out of the house and in action at the cemetery. A plan was created to clean-up more brush, etc. over the colder months, until work on the gravestones can begin this Spring.

Meanwhile shortly before I stopped work at the cemetery a donor gave $300 towards the cost for a professional gravestone conservator, Joe Ferraninni, to rebuild and level two large obelisks. One stone completely fell over and it is located at the top of a steep hill. The other monument is roughly 11' tall, is very large, and is leaning severely. Time to bring in the pros. Thank you very much RHC!!! This work will be completed in mid-Spring.
