Spring is here!

I think we can say that spring has finally arrived in the Chattahoochee Valley. When the pollen covers our vehicles with a yellow blanket, we know that the temperatures will soon be rising and summer is on the way.

If you have driven through the cemetery lately, you have seen some work being done to the gatehouse. We have painted the exterior a new color, and in the not too distant future we will be working on the inside.

Restoration continues to be a priority for the Foundation. The wall near the chapel that was falling down, has been repaired, and now will last for many years to come. We have been busy with other projects also. The Fergusson Lot, the Peddy Lot and the Pryoy/Gullen Lot have all been worked on and look fabulous! We have many more projects to do, and it is because of your generosity that we are able to accomplish what we have.

Since we have just celebrated Memorial Day, did you know that it started in Linwood Cemetery! Mr. Daniel Bellware and Dr. Richard Gardiner have co-authored a book entitled “The Genesis of the Memorial Holiday in America”, which we have in the office, which details the facts of Memorial Day starting here in Linwood Cemetery. Daniel and Richard have graciously offered to split the profit with the Foundation on any of their books that we sell.

And remember, if you know of someone planning a wedding, or a group that needs a place to meet, the Lummus Chapel is a great place for events. Also, if your organization needs a speaker, I am always willing to talk about Linwood Cemetery and the Foundation. Have PowerPoint, will travel!!!
