Newsletter

Begun and written by Ed Hughes, the Jonesville’s newsletter (Keeping in Touch) was introduced in January, 2006 (normal publication in March and October) and mailed to all 130 Friends of the Cemetery who had contributed to the cemetery through the Fund Drive or at other times. The newsletter  contained information on the history of the cemetery, on changes, and on opportunities for volunteers to assist the Board of Directors in enhancing the dignity and appearance of the cemetery.  All copies of the newsletter may be read in the History Room of the Clifton Park/Halfmoon Public Library and the Saratoga Springs Public Library.

Note in the Grass
Is it an intrusion on the special relationship between the living and a deceased person to pick up a windblown piece of paper in the cemetery and read it? Is it prying into two lives or is it like an inscription on a stone, an invitation to know someone a bit more than a name on a stone? In this case, one is reminded of the expression “To teach is to touch a life forever.”
