Union Church Cemetery Beautification
Summer-Fall 2022

In preparation for Fleetwood's 150th anniversary in 2023, we teamed up with members of our sister church, St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran, to clean the oldest Union Cemetery gravestones and the original Union Church entrance near Fleetwood Park. 

  • 1841 (original church) and 1883 (chapel) cornerstones cleaned and repaired

  • Gated entryway cleaned and iron repainted 

  • Removed grime and lichen from all 500 grave stones in the "old section"

  • Pruned low-hanging branches and removed pokeweed 

  • Replaced U.S. flags and flag holders at columbarium

  • October 29 - learning to repair broken marble grave stones

  • Near future - replace plastic dusk-to-dawn lights around columbarium

  • Longer term - professionally prune four linden trees 

Many thanks for all the generous donations from both congregations! The team used most of the funds to purchase D/2 Biological Solution and soft scrub brushes. Most other supplies were donated by Weaver's Hardware in Fleetwood and The Home Depot in the Reading area. Thrivent, the Lutheran members' charity, also donated $250 for supplies.

 

You can still help!
