Newton Twp. – The Newton Township Cemetery Association will hold its monthly meeting Thursday, March 15, 2012 at 6 p.m. at the Newton Township Administration Building on Arlington Road in Newton Falls. The meeting is open to the public. The association does reading and documentation of the gravestones in the seven township cemeteries and also does the repair work and cleaning of the stones. All work is done by members of the association and volunteers.
The seven cemeteries include the Lutheran Cemetery and St. Michael’s Cemetery, both on Newton Tomlinson Road, Wilderson Cemetery on Bush Selkirk Road, the East Cemetery on North Canal Street, the West Cemetery on Ridge Road, Duck Creek Cemetery on Duck Creek Road and the Pricetown Cemetery next to the Pricetown Methodist Church. Work on the Lutheran Cemetery and Wilderson Cemetery have been completed. Extensive work was done on the East Cemetery the summer of 2011.
Work on these projects will resume with spring weather. This work relies on volunteers, time and donations.
The yearly fundraiser was the selling of 2012 calendars with sketches of historic buildings located in Newton Falls that were donated by former art teacher, Mr. Edward Sinchak. There are a limited amount of calendars left for sale and may be purchased by calling 330-872-0236 or 330-872-3116.
You may also phone these numbers for more information regarding the association or to make donations.
