The Friends of the Godfrey Memorial Library will sponsor a program by Connecticut Gravestone Network founder Ruth Shapleigh-Brown on May 11, 2013. The mission of the Connecticut Gravestone Network is “to educate the public on the importance of old graveyards and cemeteries in our history.”
Shapleigh-Brown will give a talk on how to preserve and study our cemeteries as a way of connecting with the past. The program will be offered free of charge at 1:30 p.m. at the Godfrey Memorial Library, 134 Newfield Street. The program will be followed by a walking tour of the Riverside Cemetery, at approximately 3 pm. For more information, please call Ray L’Heureux at 203-237-3614.
