United Way Day of Caring

On September 27, 2011 six individuals representing kgb division of Lucent Technologies volunteered to assist the directors of the Union and West Cemetery as part of the United Way Day of Caring Program.

In attendance were Kelly, Lisa, Jennifer, Julie, Jane and Wayne. We began at 9 a.m. and worked until about 12:30 that afternoon. The task; clear all mulberry bushes growing around tombstones in three sections, totalling an area of almost 4 acres.

Here are some photos of the group at work:

The last picture is of Jerry Haas and Everette Carr; directors of the cemetery association. Not pictured but helping that day were Don and Janet Hagenauer, also directors.

The kbg group did a tremendous job, worked hard and earned their keep. The group donated 21 hours valued at $448.56. The Union and West End Cemetery Association truly appreciates the efforts of the employees of kbg and thank them for volunteering their services.

Thanks also to the United Way and the Volunteer Center of the Lehigh Valley for making this day possible each year.

And so it goes...

Scag Tiger Cub Zero Turn Commercial Mower


On Friday, Veterans Day, November 11, 2011, three veterans traveled to Wind Gap and finalized the purchase of a used 2007 Scag Tiger Cub, zero turn commercial lawn mower. Below are a few pictures of the effort:

It was touch and go for awhile with the seller, but we managed to snag the Scag at the $4,000.00 original asking price and the amount approved by the Cemetery Board. This is a very welcomed addition to our current fleet of mowers.

It was a very success day!
