Hello to all,

I would like to suggest 2 things concerning those who want to volunteer to
keep our cemetery clean
1. I would like all of us to have a poster size thank you letter sent to the
headmaster of the school, for it is usually the head who initiates such
2. I feel we should ask the school if there's anything they might need and
we could send them. After all a lot of money has been collected for a man
like Popovici so, we should be able to do something for the living children
in a school who offer to do such nice work for us.
Hoping to get some reaction,
