Dorchester Foundation Still Raising Funds For 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.
An Idea For Village Leaders: We see the Village of Dorchester is still looking for someone to sit at the dump to observe folks to make sure they're only dumping grass clippings, branches and leaves. (Call 402.946.3201 if you're interested.) We aren't the sharpest tools in the shed -- we just run a blog, after all. But $9 an hour at 10 hours a week over roughly 24 weeks equals around $1,300 (not including employer payroll taxes, etc.). That money could buy a surveillance camera or two to do the same job for the next several mowing seasons. There would even be money left over to place cameras in the park and at key intersections with stop signs that are often ignored, especially at night. Cameras make a lot of sense in a community with no full-time law enforcement. Just our thoughts.
