Niagara Beautification in the Cemetery

NIAGARA FALLS, NY (Oakwood Cemetery) - In spite of some trecherous temperatures volunteers pulled through and helped clean the cemetery.  We were also honored to have Congressman Brian Higgins staff volunteer with the cleanup.  The Congressman was able to take time from his busy schedule to stop by and see us.  Oakwood Cemetery is very fortunate to have such support from our community.  

Two of our volunteers are joined by Friends of Oakwood members Trudy Christman, Joel Paradise, Board Secretary Pete Ames, President Whitney Mallam in the back, Congressman Brian Higgins, and Oakwood Administrator Laurence G. Steele. Other volunteers were still gathering sticks and trash.
