2014 SPRING UPDATE - April 2014
Over the course of the spring, we will be introducing a new website for the pioneer cemetery. If you have browsed through the site, you will see that it is a site focused primarily on the restoration of the once neglected cemetery. In 2008, when we started this project, the cemetery was in terrible shape and many of the stones were actually disappearing into the earth! Well, thanks to the efforts of the organizers, the community, donors and government grants, the cemetery is now in very good condition, so we can officially state that the restoration is COMPLETE!
