Hollingsworth Cemetary during phase II of the Project Renovation

Phase II of the Hollingsworth Cemetary Project Renovation included mowing, trimming weeds, attempting to kill tree stumps and new growth, and removing portions of the fence to initiate renovation of fence. The pictures shown below were were taken on 28 October 2006 during Phase II, and reflects the vast amount of work required to clear and renovate this cemetery. With the help of Westport Camp #64 members, their goal of the future dedication ceremony at Hollingsworth Cemetary is projected to be in late summer 2007.
