Monuments restoration work begun in 2021 will start again very soon, weather permitting. Work by the volunteers will be focused on the old cemetery section which abuts to Beaman Street at the property’s entrance area. A significant amount of restoration work will be undertaken in that section. Additional volunteers for the restoration team will be greatly appreciated as work continues. Not all tasks are strenuous. If you are willing to be a volunteer, please call Karen Moon Atwood at (802)-779-5534.
