Recently, a group of Williamsburg Ruritan members and Fire Chief Rick Winfrey spent a day in the heat resetting the marker stones in St. Mary Immaculate Cemetery and the Williamsburg Cemetery next to Andrew Chapel in Williamsburg. This was just one phase of their ongoing project to reset all the markers that need repair.

They hope that all the people who visit these cemeteries appreciate the hard hours put into this project for their loved ones. It has required a lot of shovels, prybars, gravel, epoxy adhesive, and many hours of hard work.

Williamsburg Ruritan meets on the second Monday each month at 7 p.m. You are welcome to come and find out about us. For information about upcoming activities and opportunities, or to get directions, visit www.williamsburgwv.com.
