Honoring Waterford's Cemeteries: The WHS Tackles Two

On Monday May 30, 2016, Memorial Day, volunteers are invited to gather with some members of the Waterford Historical Society at 10 a.m. at the Hill Cemetery (on the Gingue dairy farm, Higgins Hill Rd) to prune, rake, and explore the Charles Hill Cemetery. Be sure to wear a hat and insect repellent? Gloves are helpful.

For a little inspiration, here are some photos of the newly visible and nicely pruned Stiles Cemetery, from earlier in May. The workers in the photos are Donna Heath, Roberta Smith, and Helen Pike; in addition, the local DAV (Disabled American Veterans) pruned the roadside hedge at another date.

And 15 years ago:

This final photo, taken by Brother Xavier Werneth of Baton Rouge, LA, in 2001, was shared on the FindAGrave site.
