With much financial assistance from the community, we are happy to announce that the work was undertaken this summer by stonemason Mick Bettany to restore the east wall of Salem United Church in Summerstown back to its grandeur.
“We are very pleased with the work” says Walter MacLean, Chairman of the Cemetery Committee. “As a result, the Committee has given the green light for Mick to continue working on the north and west walls which also require some adjustments.”
The stone walls are designed to serve as the symbolic guardian of a sacred space. Visitors are most welcome to enter the cemetery to pay their respects to those buried there.
Again, a fundraising campaign is taking place to help offset the costs of the project. If you can provide much-appreciated financial support for this project and for the ongoing maintenance of Summerstown’s historic Salem United Church Community Cemetery, please make your cheque payable to Salem United Church Cemetery Association. A tax receipt will be issued. For additional information, please contact Chris Jeffrey at 613-931-2430 or via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
