Work has started on the South Haven Church Cemetery!
On the first really fine day of Spring, with the temperatures near 70, members of the Fire Place History started preparation work for the South Haven Presbyterian Church cemetery restoration. Betty Budney, John Deitz, Eben Ludlow, Diane Martens, Richard Thomas, and Marty Van Lith are seen here excavating stones in preparation for their repair (where possible), and resetting.
Our stone mason, Hollis Warner of Riverhead, has straightened things out with the Town of Brookhaven and is ready to go -- but he is going on vacation next week, probably won't start until the week after, about April 27. In the meantime, community folks will need to excavate, clean and mark the location of the stones. If you are interested, contact Marty Van Lith, firstname.lastname@example.org,
