My name is Conner Roberts, I have successfully restored parts College Memorial Park Cemetery! I hope I can continute my service to this cemetery and do much more! This was my last goal!

--
 It is my hope that I will receive funds to restore five marked gravestones,  and even out 6 in-ground headstones, and place a monument for all the unmarked people at the cemetery. In addition to the monument, we will plant two trees for beautification on the site.
--

The community and I successfully did what was above + more, we practically doubled what was above! What I plan to do now is restore 10 marked gravestones along with evening the ground of the entire site! I also plan to build frames for the plots at the cemetery, and supply the cemetery with in-ground headstones for the missing ones!

Thank you so much for taking your time to read this! All donations are tax write-offs and greatly appreciated! Stay home and stay safe!
