Monkton news for June 24
MONKTON — On June 8, Boy Scout Troop 525 members, along with their troop leaders, volunteers and Tom Griffin from the Vermont Old Cemetery Association (VOCA) went to the Smith-Dean Cemetery in Monkton. The Smith-Dean Cemetery is located behind the Grange (formerly the Baptist Church) in Monkton Boro. The group assisted each other in the much needed clean up of the cemetery. They reset tipping stones, repaired some broken ones and picked up tree branches and other debris. This cemetery contains at least one civil war gravesite.
Members of the group also went to the Morgan Cemetery on Church Road and repaired a large stone of another soldier in the Civil War.
A big ‘Thank you’ to all who participated from the townspeople for working hard to do this cleanup and repairs.
Watch for details of the Russell Memorial Library’s 2019 Strawberry Festival coming soon.
