Mattapoisett’s newly formed Cemetery and Memorials Advisory Committee has several areas of responsibility.
Acting in an advisory manner, the committee will assist the Select Board in matters related to the municipal cemeteries Barlow and Hammond.
They will advise and assist in the coordination of memorial bricks and benches. New forms are available for the purchase of memorial bricks from Town Hall, the Library, or the Council on Aging.
They are also seeking information for the future recognition of all veterans, either buried or interned in Mattapoisett. The committee is working with the Sons of the American Revolution to establish a commemorative plaque naming those Patriots.
Expanding on the identification of all Veterans’ graves, if you have information that can assist the committee, please contact Chairman Ray Hanks through the Select Board’s office.
