Engaging Students in South Byfield Cemetery. 

For the 3rd in a row Don’s community group ‘Preserving Newbury’ will be working with Triton’s Football and Soccer team. Every year Preserving Newbury can be found working in cemeteries making sure the veterans graves look great for Veterans’ Day and Wreath Day in December. 

The last couple of years these young athletics from Triton have done community service at the First Parish Burying Ground. Their day generally consisted of raking, clearing brush, pull weeds and basic lawn care maintenance. This year Preserving Newbury will be teaching these students the art of cleaning gravestones.

 Earlier this year Preserving Newbury was taught by a professional Ta Mara Conde from Histroic Gravestone Services on how to clean gravestones. These students will learn the same techniques.
