This was the thinking of Northbranch community members when they gathered recently at Northbranch Cemetery for an evening of eating and visiting to celebrate the completion of a new fence constructed at the cemetery. "Surely this must be a first," said one of the participants. The event was planned to show appreciation to those who donated money and labor--or both--to install the fencing. A brush pile had already accumu- lated in the unused portion of the cem- etery and was u~ed for the fire for the wiener roast, and marshmallow toast- ing. Watermelon and hot chocolate completed the menu. There didn't seem to be any ghost stories floating around in the crowd-- just a good time for catching up on some visiting with neighbors and co- workers.
