Cemetery expansion wrapping up

LYNDEBOROUGH – Clear cutting of a cou­ple of acres behind the eastern end of the South Cemetery is nearing completion. The work is being done by R. Lemire and Sons Logging of An­trim. All brush is being chipped and hauled away leaving a clean site.

Cemetery Trustees have said the clear cut, plus selective cutting of the rest of the 10-acre tract, will pay for fu­ture cemetery work. It will take several years to make the area into a landscaped cemetery and by then will be need­ed for burials.

The South Yard is the oldest cemetery in town with graves dating to be­fore the Revolutionary War.
