PLEASE HELP!! WE ARE IN DESPERATE NEED OF DONATIONS!!
Ward Cemetery needs your help now more than ever, as we have incurred significant unexpected expenses this year. Our cemetery suffered damage from water pouring down the hillside during the major flooding in June. Most of the damage has now been repaired by an independent contractor hired and paid for by the Ward Cemetery Advisory Committee.
NOW SOMEONE HAS BROKEN INTO OUR STORAGE BUILDINGS AND ALL OF OUR WEED EATERS, CHAIN SAWS, AND TOOLS HAVE BEEN STOLEN! We are in the middle of our grass cutting season and desperately need money to purchase new weed eaters and other necessary equipment so that we can keep the cemetery from becoming totally overgrown this summer. Our funding for the care of the cemetery is obtained through donations and fundraisers. Please consider donating. You may donate by check or money order made payable to Ward Cemetery Advisory Committee and mail to Sherry Smith, 3012 Dorsey Drive, Belle, WV, 25015 or you can donate through our website using PayPal. If you can donate new or slightly used heavy-duty professional grade weed eaters or chain saws in good working condition, please contact us through our website HERE or call John Kidd at 304-727-5695. Please contact us in this same manner if you have information about this theft. Please help us keep a watch on suspicious activity at the cemetery as we explore solutions for the secure storage of our equipment.
