Veterans, Families and Friends of Middletown Cemetery

As I stood at the Middletown Cemetery on Memorial Day, the Honor Guard playing taps, tears rolled down my cheeks and a deep sadness filled my heart for those buried at the Middletown Cemetery. Two hundred and thirty-three known veterans of the Revolutionary War through the Viet Nam
War are buried at this cemetery.

The Middletown Cemetery is an amazing place and worth a visit and a donation from anyone who cares about this city and our past.

Does the Middletown Cemetery Committee have an address you could give out or can you give us us more specifics about how we can make a donation?
