A Historic Cemetery Restoration Speaking Event at The Ashland Village Burial Grounds behind the Federated Church
Presented by: TNT Gravestone Solutions LLC, Todd Baptista, Troy Rebello and Dawn Young
The Ashland Historic Society and the Ashland Historic Commission have partnered to bring this speaking event to you. If you are concerned about the conditions that currently exist in this historic cemetery in Ashland this is your opportunity to hear what the possibilities for restoration are.
This will be a walk and talk presentation we will speak to general issues, concerns, etc. right there in front of us. We will use actual gravestones in the talk and our explanations and can answer questions folks may have based on what we see and find. They will bring along some D/2 biological solution so that you can see exactly how the cleaning process works, too.
Parking: Behind Town Hall located at 101 Main Street and Across from the Ashland Public Library located at: 66 Front Street
Light refreshments provided
We would suggest people who may not want to stand the entire time bring a portable chair.
