Depot Street Phone 888-2011 A Statement on EVERGREEN CEMETERY and EVERGREEN CEMETERY ANNEX I feel sure that it is generally known that When the new Town Board held its first meeting on July 3, 1973 I was appointed to my old job as CARETAKER of the two above listed cemeteries which I will refer to in my remarks as Our Cemetery. I gave up his job, voluntarily and of my own choosing, after 22 years of continuous service on July 12, 1971. My sole reason for taking that action was that City Hall was not agreeable to giving me the $400.00 per month that I asked for in order to break even on the job. The new Town Board that took office in July, 1973 was agreeable to paying me $450.00 per month for CARE OF THE CEMETERY. When I gave up the job as Caretaker of Our Cemetery on July 12, 1971 !, quite frankly, never intended to take the job back in the future. It is a tremen- dous responsibility and if done right no profit could possibly be made from it. All I wanted was for the Town Board to get someone, other than me, to take the job and I was willing to lend a,ny assistance or advice needed. It developed that the NEW TOWN BOARD did not want anyone else and I was flattered that the BOARD members and the people in general wanted me to reassume thls responsibility. My wife was bitterly opposed to my taking the job back-she lived with me those 22 years that I kept the cemetery previously and she well knows the headaches involved with this job. After six weeks of hard work and the cooperation of City Hall I am glad to report to you that Our Cemetery is in good shape. I have already spent in excess of $2,500.00 in equipment, supplies, repairs and labor which will substantiate my contention that lam not doing thls work to make money out of it. It is very gratifying to see so many smiling faces lately-this fact alone makes me feel that my reassumptlon of this responsibility is worthwhile. I want to take this opportunity to thank Clty Hall for the-confidence it has shown in me-and to all the fine people who have been so liberal with their compliments about Our Cemetery the past few days I say "thank you "from the bottom of my heard" Our Cemetery is beautiful and with your help and encouragement I plan to keep it that way.
