At the June Palatine Township Board meeting, Historical Society President  Joe     Petykowski presented a check for $1,000 to the president and vice president of the Palatine Township Cemetery Committee.  This money was from our annual Hillside Cemetery Walk as well as additional money from the Historical Society Board.  The money will be used for Hillside Cemetery restoration by Stonehuggers, owned by Helen Wildemuth, in August.  Watch for photos of that work in September.


Here is what our money helped to pay for. The weather was good and a lot of work was done at Hillside. The cemetery is getting close to the end of its restoration; it is becoming a place of beauty as well as serenity. Thank you Helen Wildemuth for the wonderful job your company, Stonehuggers, does.
