Montrose Cemetery Assoc. Establishes Endowment
Earlier this spring, The Montrose Cemetery Association established a permanent endowment fund with The Community Foundation of Susquehanna & Wyoming Counties to help support the maintenance and administrative costs of managing the188-year old cemetery. The nearly $200,000.00 endowment has, in fact, existed since the mid 1970s, but the association has transferred it to The Community Foundation for local management.
Community Foundation Director of Development, Peter Quigg, states, “We are proud that the Cemetery Association has chosen to transfer its endowment to us. For decades, their Board of Directors has proven their integrity as stewards of their finances as well as of the resting place for the families of our area. The cemetery reflects much of the history of this region and together the Cemetery Association and The Community Foundation are ensuring that our heritage will be watched over for generations to come.” Current Cemetery Association Board Members include Wayland Bateson, Ned Birchard, Angie and Jim Frystak, Mike Hinds, Jerry Lathrop, Eleanor McKeage, Fraser Moffat, Greg Myer, James Olin, Carol Peckins, and Dan Regan.
The Cemetery Association works diligently to make sure part of our history is maintained with dignity and passed on to future generations prepared to continue the tradition. To assist the Association with its work, tax-deductible donations to The Montrose Cemetery Association Fund may be sent to The Community Foundation, 36 Lake Avenue, Montrose 18801.
