In addition to several major restoration projects, the Newark Union Church & Cemetery has several small projects that we hope to get completed this year.  These small projects include restoration of the Church Pulpit, installing a Flag & Flagpole in the Military Memorial, planting Memory Gardens and trees in open spaces throughout the Cemetery and cleaning headstones and footstones.  Your donation will help the Newark Union Church & Cemetery complete these projects. 

We are so grateful to everyone who has been supporting us with encouragement and their personal resources.  We look forward to making progress in our restoration and improvement goals with your continued support.
