At the end of March we had an ice storm which took down several large limbs on the cemetery grounds. A special thanks to Bruce for picking up the limbs and to Ed for allowing us to put them on his burnpile!

After quite a bit of work, the Fletcher Memorial is complete! We owe a huge debt of gratitude to Canon Funeral Home who donated the bronze plaque at the site and to Steve Chapman who designed and completed the project. The Fletcher Memorial is on the south side of the cemetery near the Chapman and Snow plots.
