Our local Veteran’s Cemetery sits on a high hill overlooking Liberty’s Village.In circles around a flagpole, lie our local hero’s that served in the wars of our past.
As we get ready to celebrate the 4th July with fireworks, parades and family parties let’s not forget that we celebrate a moment in our history back in 1776 that was made possible by those who fought in the Revolutionary War declaring our independence from Great Britian as the United States of America.
Recently there has been concern that some areas of our local cemeteries are in need of care.
In cooperation with Elton Harris of Harris Funeral Home, Spirit of Liberty volunteers Cindy & Veronica Gieger and Veteran Heinrich Wilhelm assisted in the first of many cooperative work days to restore the resting places of those we remember.
Amidst rainy conditions, a total of 12 gravesites were straightened with Eltons guidance. It was a tribute to our local veterans who served our country well.
In a joint effort & across the street on Cold Spring Road, Knights of Columbus members Gene Burns & Jim Dennis were in the Old Liberty Cemetery working to free many gravesites of brambles & brush.
We thank Liberty Supervisor, Brian Rourke for his support in this project and his reaching out to our local Veterans. The reclamation efforts of both cemeteries will continue thanks to the dedication of many !
