 ABOVE - the "Benjamin" stone, which was both leaning
and threatened by the home of a woodchuck, was re-situated by A. Cozzi Monuments.

The Friends of Muskalonge Cemetery had worked with Inkwell Graphix to arrange for
both the design and delivery of the cemetery sign.

Memorial Day Observance Scheduled
for Muskalonge Cemetery

Monday, May 26th, 9:00 a.m.

For a 4th year, a Memorial Day Observance is scheduled at Muskalonge Cemetery by the Friends of the cemetery. They anticipate the Sackets Harbor American Legion, Ladies Auxiliary, (select) Sentinel Band & 10th Mt. Division members will stop and pay tribute to those who died while serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. As this is a pioneer cemetery owned by the Town, many of the veterans interred here served during the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812.  However, there are veterans who served in later wars, and one who fought during WW II.

Due to the recent sequester, and because of anticipated, long delays,
the Friends group does not foresee receiving veteran replacement stones in 2014.

Check out our Maple Syrup Fundraiser produced by W.E. Allen.

USES: Great on blueberry pancakes. Use in place of table sugar as a sweetener (great for tea and coffee), pour some on oatmeal (along with walnuts and raisins), add to cooked sweet potatoes (with cinnamon), use as a glaze for ham (along with brown sugar), or spread over top of peanut butter and sliced bananas on whole wheat toast. Yum!

Regardless of how you enjoy this tasty treat, we hope you will purchase maple syrup be W.E. Allen to help support our Muskalonge Cemetery restoration effort. Call Warren directly: 315-486-3919.

Thank you, in advance!
