These photos were made on the last work day at the Crider (Blk) Cemetery at Fredonia.
It has nine grave markers and as you can see from the pictures, we finally got to use the
markers that Richard P'Pool was able to come up with from donated material from Alcan.
We marked 130 graves and when the weather begins to get better maybe we can fill in the sunken graves.
According to Richard these markers do not deteriorate over time, only turn from off white to a light gray.
We still have a lot to do, but I guess we're right where we are supposed to be.

The cemetery cleaning crew worked for several Saturdays on this cemetery.
It was in dire need of some TLC, which they provided.

Material was provided by Alcan and was used to mark each spot that appeared to be a grave.
The leaves were not raked and were left to help keep weeds from growing.
