Help welcome for cemetery work
Arkville — The Historical Society of the Town of Middletown is seeking volunteers as it continues to repair the grounds of the Arkville Cemetery on the cutoff road. A workday is planned for Sunday, June 27 beginning at 1 p.m. If you can help, please contact coordinator Brian Wheaton at 586-2294, or just show up. Please bring shovels, rakes, clippers or chain saws if you have them.
Materials and equipment for the restoration of the cemetery, which dates back to the early 1800s, are being funded by a legislative grant provided by Assemblyman Clifford Crouch to the Town of Middletown. However, volunteers are needed to fill holes, clear brush, trim trees and help right several toppled stones.
