City of Allentown Lends a Hand


The City of Allentown made it a great day for the Union and West End Cemetery. A crew from the City Parks Department paid a visit to the cemetery and took down one of the trees in the cemetery that had been emarked as dangerous. A portion of it broke off and fell earlier this year knocking down one the the cemetery's light post. The city agreed to take it down for us when time permitted.















It was really great to see the city trucks and equipment in the cemetery assisting the cemetery perform tasks that the cemetery is not equipped to handle.

A big Thank You to Francis Dougherty and John Fasolka of the City of Allentown.
