SECTION A RESTORATION PROJECT
We have reached 80% of our goal!! 
Sincere thanks to our donors.
Please help us fund the last 20% of this critical project.  What a difference we can make!

fallen stone to be re-setSection A attracts many visitors, and we all know that when we take a walk in a cemetery, the first things that catch our eyes are the broken, toppled, or otherwise damaged monuments. We have counted 148 grave-stones in Section A that need restoration. And we have received an estimate from a trusted contractor that the restoration work would cost $14,800. 

Please be a financial contributor at whatever amount suits you. To contribute, please send a check , with the notation "Section A Restoration," to:
