The Maynard Historical Commission and the Town of Maynard would like to extend to you a special invitation to attend the Dedication Ceremony of the Glenwood Cemetery Perimeter Iron Fence. This historic replica fence project was almost 20 years in the making and was funded by a grant from the Community Preservation Act as well as funds from the town’s perpetual care fund.

The event is scheduled for Saturday, October 3, 2015 from starting at 10am (rain or shine). Guests are encouraged to use the Parker Street entrance (Rt. 27) of Glenwood Cemetery.
A short dedication ceremony will commence at 10am, followed by the unveiling of a new addition to the WALK MAYNARD series – a self-guided tour of Glenwood Cemetery.
