A Beautiful Work Day in the Neighborhood

by | Nov 7, 2022 | Community Event

Saturday morning, November 5th found a small but ambitious group of volunteers at the Goshen Village Cemetery vigorously attacking the decades old growth of brush and trees that have grown at the East side of the cemetery.

The Walsh/Viko – Town of Goshen cemetery line was, once more, visable. Much more work will need to be done to make this area ready to be mowed but a good start was made in a couple of hours, at no cost to the town. There is brush to be hauled, roots to be dug out and leaves by the bushel to be taken away. In addition, there are more trees towering over 150+ year old grave stones that will, soon need to be removed, rather expensively unfortunately.

Want to help out? Give us a call. More bulbs will be planted in the next couple of weeks if anyone would like to help. As long as our good weather holds, we will keep plugging away at making the final resting place of past Goshen residents a place we can all be proud of. If a Goshen winter comes along sooner than we would like, we will continue in the spring!

Call or speak to any one of the cemetery committee members anytime.
