Cemetery workshop planned for May 31


Friends of Middletown Cemeteries and the Historical Society of the Town of Middletown have invited The Haines Family Association to conduct a one-day workshop on cleaning and repairing old cemetery stones Saturday, May 31.

Family association leaders, local historians, genealogists, town officials and caretakers who have cemetery maintenance as one of their duties will find this workshop invaluable.

The workshop will begin at 10 a.m. at Fairview Public Library’s Community Room, 43 Walnut Street, Margaretville, and will continue with an afternoon demonstration and work session at the Arkville Cemetery on county Route 38 (the cut-off Road). 

Pre-registration is not necessary. A $5 fee will cover the cost of a printed guide which all participants will receive. Please wear suitable clothing and bring a lunch.
