Branch organizers have arranged to help clean and restore Middleville Cemetery, a small, abandoned half-acre cemetery from the early 1800s in Huntington Township, near Northport, Long Island. Huntington town historian Bob Hughes will join us, and tell us a little about the history of the area and the cemetery. Work will range from light yard-type cleaning to more rigorous tree and garden work, so wear comfortable, warm work clothes and boots, and bring gardening/work gloves. Tools will be provided, but if you have rakes, clippers, or a gas-powered weedwhacker, bring them along! We'll begin at 9:00 am and go until late afternoon (picnic lunch will be provided). Public transportation available on Long Island Railroad (Port Jefferson Line - Northport Station). Car pooling can be arranged by calling Tom Baldwin at 212-677-0485. RSVP by November 7. PS: You'll find out that there is an uncanny and unexpected connection to McGill at the cemetery!
