Sunday 9/16 Clark’s Cemetery Event

This Sunday, starting at 10:00 AM, volunteers from the Cemetery Advisory Committee, Clark’s Cemetery restoration crew, and the Cemetery Restoration Partnership will be working in Clark’s to right what we believe is the Josiah Stevens, Jr. monument.  Josiah is a Civil War Veteran and has been knocked down for several years.  The monument weighs approximately 1,980 pounds.  Stop by and watch our crew at work, learn about Clark’s Cemetery or spend time volunteering.
