Help at cemetery lauded

To the Editor:

The Essex County Veterans Cemetery Board of Directors wish to thank the Essex County Highway Department, including Tony LaVigne and his Staff for the care given to the Cemetery this year. Since "Irene," they have been busy building bridges, roads and public facilities. They still found time to mow and maintain the cemetery. We also have directional signs throughout Wadhams Road. The lighted American Flag is also a beautiful sight at Night. Many people have commented in passing that it is “inspiring.”

To add to the appearance this summer the Elizabethtown Westport Garden Club has planted a perennial garden at the base of the sign - beautifully landscaped. Thank you ladies.

We have reached many of our goals with success with just a few left to complete. (hopefully this year). This has become an honorable memorial to all our Essex County Veterans. Thank You. God Bless America.
