WHO'S BURIED AT THE GRAND TRUNK CEMETERY?
In my search of records, I have found birth dates for a number of those interred at the East Deering/Grand Trunk Cemetery. Please check that earlier post.
This is an invitation to those of you who live in the Portland area to meet the three young Junior Girl Scouts who are carrying on the legacy of Samantha Allshouse and Kayla Theriault, who took on this reclamation project. Of course, we could also benefit from as many helping hands as wish to come on May 10th.
The girls, through the Girl Scout Council, have sent out requests for donated perennials, mulch,and other items for the gardens they plan to put in at the cemetery. I have also sent this invitation to our 'informal' Friends of the Grand Trunk Cemetery and a suggestion that if any wish to donate plants from their own gardens, we would be most appreciative. I am also available to pick up any plants. Just leave a request on this blog, or call the number listed on the flyer.
Hope to meet those of you who are able, at the GTC, behind Presumpscot School, on a sunny (Hopefully!) Saturday on May 10th!
