Are You Donating To Help Build Dorchester's Cemetery Directory?: The Dorchester Community Foundation Fund is still working on its next project -- a directory for the Dorchester Cemetery. This structure will help loved ones and friends find the burial site of those who have been laid to rest in our community's cemetery just east of the village. To help raise the necessary funds for this important project, the Foundation is offering an engraved brick sponsorship. Here's a link for readers to download or print if interested in contributing to the construction of Dorchester's new cemetery directory.
