Spring Work Day held at Gardnersville Cemetery Print E-mail

The Gardnersville Cemetery held spring work days Thursday, April 17 and Friday, April 18, 2014. The cemetery property contained six large silver maple trees with diameters of 42 to 54 inches.  The trees were badly deteriorating in need of removal. The cemetery board awarded the lowest bid to professional tree expert Stan Freeman to cut the trees down in a fashion as not to damage cemetery property. The cemetery board saved several thousand dollars by board members removing the tree debris themselves.

When funds become available, the next two projects are repaving the cemetery roads and replanting of trees. If you would like to make a donation to the cemetery for repaving the cemetery roads or purchasing a tree, please make you donation payable to the Gardnersville Cemetery.  Please mail your donation to the Gardnersville Cemetery, % Sonny Caldwell, 4587 Highway 491, DeMossville, Ky.  41033.
