CEMETERY: Work at the cemetery has been completed. The redesigned monument circle looks beautiful. Our goal in removing the curb and replacing the grass with pavers is to make it even with the driveway. Due to the narrow roadway vehicles can now ride over the pavers if necessary and not be forced onto the lawn/graves. We thank Mirek Muczko and his crew of Mirek Masonry LLC for a great job enhancing the appearance of our cemetery. Again, thank you to head caretaker John Bouchard for his supervision. Above all, we are very grateful to all of you who supported our project. Throughout the years our many tag sales and raffles and your generous contributions brought in $3,800.00. God Bless. Cemetery Committee’s mission is to honor the memory of the righteous departed in their place of rest.+++Our next project is addressing the water faucets. Please be patient as we try to solve this problem.+++Christmas arrangements are now being discarded.+++Any questions or concerns contact John at 860-223-7802.
