    Cemetery marker a fitting tribute

    I would like to express my thanks to everyone who attended the dedication ceremony on May 22 at the House of Correction Cemetery. This largely forgotten cemetery is located behind Northwest School, in close proximity to Rutlandís new bike path. Stafford Technical teacher Jeff Fowler and his construction technology students, who designed and assembled the memorial sign for the cemetery, certainly deserve recognition by the citizens of Rutland for their efforts.

    This is the second cemetery memorial that Jeffís class has completed for the city cemetery commissioners. The Poor Farm Cemetery kiosk, at the Rutland transfer station on Gleason Road, was another successful project accomplished by these outstanding students and their teacher.

    I encourage everyone to take a walk on the bike path and admire the work these students accomplished to acknowledge a unique part of Rutlandís history.


    (Rutland Cemetery Commissioner)
