Spiffing up a Salem cemetery
The volunteer group Rediscovering History did a cleanup May 1 at Fox Cemetery in Salem.
Participants included Michael Carroll, president; his fiancé Lisa Caiazzo, treasurer; Michele and Doug Walworth, board members; Hugh McKenney, and Becky DiPalma.
As Carroll reported: “We did the initial cleanup, found a couple of stones that were buried under the ground growth, and started to clean some of the stones. We will be returning very soon to continue the work and routine maintenance of the cemetery.”
