My hometown needs help!
Veterns, History buffs, people that care about our American heritage! WE NEED YOUR HELP! October 12th Vandals tore up our beautiful, historical cemetery. This is a CRIME! This cemetery has stood here since 1828 and is the final resting place for many of our military personnel and people that helped make America what it is today! Kendall is a part of the Erie Canal, the underground railroad, Civil war history, the Dutch pioneers history, etc.etc. This cemetery holds the past in it hands and now it needs our help to heal the terrible wounds some vandals caused. ~ WE CAN'T DO IT ALONE ~
Kendall is a very small community of farmers and many retirees. We are rich in heritage but not in money. Beechwood Cemetary is very important to us.
We don't have an actual figure of how much it will cost to clean up and restore what we can to the cemetary. I just learned that through other sources we are able to get the stone work done on the headstones and monuments for around $3000! Many people in the town would like to see our little chapel converted to a memorial for the service people that served our country from Kendall. That will be costly because of the vandalizm and condition it's in.
LET'S GIVE OUR HEROS A FITTING MEMORIAL IN THIS BEAUTIUFL LITTLE CHAPEL! THEY DESERVE IT!
Thank you to all the contributors!
I'll donate 100% of the money I collect to the cemetary restoration
