FOMH YOUTUBE VIDEOS!

Dear FOMH friends,

You know how excited we are about our cradle grave project! We now have two special treats for you -- two videos celebrating this project. The first is a photo essay by Margaret Miyake, a celebrated local photographer who has a profound love of Mount Hope Cemetery. This summer Margaret spent many hours exploring the cemetery and taking photos. She selected some of her favorites, and our YouTube producer Chris Grooms added the music and FOMH information.

We dedicate this video to our cradle grave gardeners, who worked so hard this summer to produce these "splashes of color and tradition."



The second video, Cradle Grave Gardeners Vol 1, is a collection of some responses received from gardeners when asked to share their cradle grave experiences. We think it is amazing, and we send kudos to all who contributed. We will follow this video with Vol. 2 in the spring, which will include more such interviews.

This video was created and organized by Pat Sorce, our PR chair. Music was selected and added by producer Chris Grooms. (Mozart's Piano Concerto #21 in C - Andante)

This video is a special gift from the FOMH to the community – We want to celebrate this new program and congratulate our gardeners for their devotion and creativity during this 2020 season!

Take a walk in Mount Hope Cemetery and observe the glory of our many cradle graves. And remember the people buried in these graves and their families.  May their memories be a blessing.
