Quorum is present
White Court Cemetery: Tony St. Pierre reports that a majority of burials are members of the White Family. Josh has cleaned up the cemetery and constructed a fence around it. Mr. St. Pierre informed the Commission that the Eagle Scout part of the project has been completed but that Scout Troop 134 has picked up & will continue the clean-up. Debby makes suggestion that when cemetery is done in its entirety, we have a ceremony, inviting people to thank the scouts for all that they have done. Shirley agrees and thanks Mr. St. Pierre for all his hard work. Before he left, Mr. St. Pierre also presented us with before and after pictures.
Ronnie Vaillancourt: Member of family had purchased 12 plots many years prior. It seems that there are four plots left and Dorothy Vallaincourt wanted to gift two of them to Ronnie & his wife Barbara. The plots were initially in the name of Thomas. Debby looks through the ledger and finds the name nowhere. Shirley asks them if they have the correct cemetery. Dorothy states that it is indeed Evergreen Cemetery. Debby explains that Evergreen is not under the care of the Cemetery Commission, but she can put her in touch with someone who might be able to help her. She states that she has a name. Vaillancourts thank the Commission for their help and leave.
