Town Cemetery Committee
November 6, 2017

Present: Russell Smith, David Jenney, Jody Kundreskas, Jane Aiudi and town manager Mary Sabins.

Met at 3:30 at the town office.

We approved the minutes from the last meeting with one correction to indicate that the October meeting had been cancelled.

Mary reported that she had submitted a grant proposal to the Stephen King foundation for this year’s round of awards. It is for the cemetery mapping, computerization, etc. She reworked much of the wording from last year’s submission. The requests will be reviewed in February and notifications will be sent out in March.

Jody reported that she had pretty much completed her work for this season. She completed the Wiggins cemetery across from the Vassalboro Elementary School and has submitted those graves to Find-A-Grave.

There had been some question on the ability of a truck to access the newly marked graves in the Cross Hill Cemetery. Mary reported that she had talked with some funeral directors and others in the industry and was assured that the equipment on the trucks could in fact reach into the center graves in the new section.

Jane will take with Jim Ashton to find out if there are any signs that still need to be put up.

Next meeting: Mon, January 8, 2018 at 3:30. (meeting cancelled)
