THANK YOU: “On behalf of the Cemetery Committee I would like to thank all the participants who braved the cool, rainy weather in order to brush the circumference of our cemetery.  It was a necessary job that has been put off for some time. Thank you also, to JP Allard for providing a chipper to dispose of the brush. It saved us a ton of work.” Denzil Spence
