What does the future look like?

How can we support preservation efforts?

keeping the grounds

The Friends of Mount Bethel Cemetery is made up of donors to the cemetery maintenance, both financial and those who volunteer their time to the upkeep of the grounds.

 We rely solely on The Friends to continue our work and maintain the cemetery. If you are already on our Friends list, please consider an increase in your contribution this year, and/or consider a “Leave A Legacy” bequest to the cemetery in your will so that we can meet the many challenges that lie ahead.
