WONDERFUL THINGS ARE HAPPENING....

 

***CEMETERY ADOPTED***

 

 

CR068 FRIENDS BURIAL GROUND WILBUR AVENUE CHCC is delighted to announce that Sara Szerlag has agreed to adopt CR068 Friends Burial Ground on Wilbur Avenue which is located next to the Oak Lawn Baptist Church. CHCC decided to put this lot up for adoption a couple of weeks ago because while it appeared to us that some work was being done there it was not being maintained on a regular basis and we had absolutely no idea who was doing what. Happily, that all changed today. Earlier today, John Hill and Paul Tognetti from CHCC met with Sara and her son J.J. Sara is very enthusiastic about assuming responsibility for this cemetery. While we were there, Robin Butzier dropped by to say "hello". As it turns out, Robin works at the J. Arthur Trudeau Memorial Center in Warwick and is very familiar with the Friends Burial Ground. For the past four years, Robin has been periodically bringing a group of adult clients to the cemetery to help to maintain it and to participate in various activities there. Furthermore, Robin advised us that several parishioners from the church have done work in the cemetery from time-to-time. Sara invited Robin to help out anytime they want and also will encourage those interested parishioners of Oak Lawn Baptist Church to become involved as well. The bottom line is that CR068 is now going to be managed and maintained on a regular basis. We thank Sara for adopting this cemetery and hope that others will follow her lead. Since CHCC began our "adopt a cemetery" campaign a little less than a year ago a total of 17 cemeteries have been adopted by individuals. At least a dozen more are maintained by businesses, families and unknown individuals. As a result, we are convinced that Cranston's historical cemeteries are in the best shape they have been in decades. We thank everyone who has so generously answered the call to help us to maintain these sacred spaces. About CR068... There are said to be 19 burials here with 16 inscriptions and 3 fieldstones.
