Work is just about complete on the new roof on the cemetery office!  The east portion of the building is older and had tile roofing; the west portion had shingles.  The new metal roof gives a more uniform look to both roofs and will last for many years to come and the green gives an aged copper appearance.  Preservation work was also done on the chimney.
