Help needed for Ken Postle’s Cemetery Restoration Work: With the spring fast approaching, Ken is in need of some new tools, gloves,and epoxy to repair the gravestones. We are asking for small donations of maybe $5 or $10. As you know, we rarely ask for donations, but the Cemetery Fund is low, so please consider donating.
Please send your tax deductible donation to BVHS, P.O Box 125, Lincoln R.I 02865 and mention cemetery recovery project. Thank you for being a part of this great work!
