Cemetery fence

This is some creative thinking on the part of the Unionville Cemetery Association's board! To spruce up the old iron fence around the cemetery (which is just across Route 82 from the Unionville post office), the group is starting an "Adopt a Section" program.
"With a tax deductible donation of $100.00, donors would be "responsible" for a 6' section of the fence," said Board member Rusty Young, who is co-chairing the project with lot holder John Montague. The fence, an 1860 gift from Anna W. Seal, was last repainted in 1960. "When all donations are secured, and welding repairs are completed, the fence will be professionally cleaned and repainted, to restore it to its original condition."
For more information you can contact me ( and I'll put you in touch with Mr. Young, or you can visit the cemetery's Facebook page (yes, even graveyards do social media now).
