May Tombstone Repair work

It was a beautiful day as many returned to the Old Burying Ground to continue efforts to improve the appearance and condition of the gravestones. City Manager Ron Coffey also stopped by to view the progress. Scott got to officially try out his new gravestone "lifter" which will make it a lot easier to bring stones up to a level condition. John spent time trimming back the young trees and underbrush (under doctor's orders to not lift for a few more weeks). Shirley continued recording the names (at least the ones we could read); Venus, Gloria and Kay continued cleaning; Susan and Jim Thompson helped with weed control around Travellers Rest and Jim did some of the heavy digging with Scott. Jacquelyn Doles was also there to help and learn the process.

More sessions will be planned for the future to continue this massive effort. If you would like to participate, give the Society a call.
