Cemetery Workshop

The Putney Cemetery Commission invites volunteers to an afternoon of cemetery restoration led by Charles Marchant of Townshend on Saturday, September 22nd, rain or shine. The workshop will take place at the Maple Grove Cemetery, located on Old Rt. 5, near the center of town, from 1:00 to 5:00. The afternoon will begin with a brief tour and assessment of the vandalized cemetery followed by some instruction and work to repair the damage as time allows. Mr. Marchant is well known for his knowledge of old Vermont cemeteries and his skills in righting, cleaning and repairing headstones.
