Sharing this news story from the "Tribune Chronicle" in Warren, Ohio (Trumbull County) -- "Cemeteries See Improvements"
There is so much more to this story than what this short title might imply.
Newton Township, Trumbull County, Ohio cemeteries have been the beneficiaries of many generous and kind-hearted residents. Concerned folks who passed the needed cemetery levies, moved forward with yearly fund raisers, and continued with their active volunteerism and personal donations -- all for the betterment of their township cemeteries.
The more I read through each paragraph in this article, the more it becomes evident that advancing cemetery preservation in a community comes through active local participation and creative fund raising efforts. Donors and volunteers are so important and their work and contributions are needed and appreciated.
Below are links to the cemeteries mentioned in the news article; and a link and quotation by the Newton Township Cemetery Association:
