Sidney L. Shafer, Boni L. Shafer, Beverly K. Sterling-Affinati and Dennis C. Affinati pose beside a 19th century grave inside Muscallonge Cemetery on Evans Road in the town of Hounsfield Saturday.  

The group, joined by several volunteers this weekend, repaired gravestones which had been vandalized, neglected and weathered over the years. 

Mrs. Sterling-Affinati said a group named “Friends of the Muscallonge Cemetery” has been formed and that she would like to see the implementation of a sponsor-a-grave program where residents could pick a grave which they would have the responsibility to maintain.
