We Made a Dent in the Pioneer Cemetery Clean-Up
Also known as the Hills of Peace. This local historic gem has a “view to die for” as Mary Lou Pozzo likes to say! A bunch of us locals spent many hours this weekend helping to clear weeds and clean up around the property. The weather was perfect! The great thing about working in this cemetery was being surrounded by so much history. Mary Lou is a walking, talking, repository of local history and she would break up the work by launching into story after story. We are going to try to get her to speak at an upcoming STA meeting! Stay tuned for more info on that.
There’s More Work To Be Done
Mary Lou has been the caretaker for many years, practically all by herself. Those of us who participated, somehow convinced Mary Lou to let us help out a little more. So, if you’ve been looking for something to do, or even just wondering about the graveyard, here’s your chance.
