We are pleased to report that the St David AME Zion Church Cemetery fence has been completed, thanks to generous donations from individuals and the Archeological Institute of America.
We are in special appreciation of the Mayor Sandra Schroeder's help and enthusiasm about this project, which will further beauty our wonderful Village and dignify an important historic treasure. We have invited the Village Board of Trustees, the Board of Historical Preservation & Architectural Review, press, Assemblyman Fred Thiele, Legislator Fleming, and the Supervisors of East Hampton and Southampton towns.
We are also deeply grateful to Sally Susman and Robin Canter for providing much-needed funds for the purchase of fence materials, to the Iron Fence Shop of Kent, OH for its help in the purchase, to the Sag Harbor Partnership for its fundraising efforts to erect the fence, to Moises Cerdas Builder LLC for his generous discounting if its installation, and to Ed Hollander, Tim Blenk Tree Care, Whitmores Landscaping, and Tim Miller & Associates for contributing their services gratis to prepare the landscaping of the cemetery grounds prior to the fence's delivery and installation.
Michael Butler, the Chairperson of the Cemetery Committe, worked tirelessly to see this project to completion, as did April Gornik of the Sag Harbor Partnership.
