Canaan Cemetery Trustees Annual Report 2014

Exciting news starting this year, and we must thank Vicky McAlister, our Town Clerk/Tax Collector, along with David Heath & Barry Geddes. They worked 2 or 3 hours a day, 1 day a week for 5 or 6 weeks mapping the Wells Cemetery. The end result will be that Scott Sanborn of Cardigan Mountain Land Survey will be able to make a map that can be added to as needed and that can be used on line to look up loved ones and find exactly where they are located. Our dream is to eventually have this for all of our town cemeteries.

Again this year, we have taken down a few more problem trees, this time at the Sawyer Hill Cemetery. We have also continued our tree trimming efforts in all cemeteries. We believe our work has paid off, as more of the grass is greener and looking so much better in most areas. Thank you Dave & Barry for your continued efforts. Job well done.

Again we would like to thank the boys at Cardigan Mountain School who volunteered to help with cleanup at Wells and Canaan Street Cemeteries. All your hard work is greatly appreciated.

We also want to thank the Cardigan Mountain Bobcat 4-H Club for their continued annual cleanup at the Schofield Cemetery. We appreciate all your efforts.

Respectfully submitted,
