Problem - many old trees threatening our very old, delicate monuments in wind storms 

Solution - we received grants for 2 consecutive years to hire an arborist to cut down and remove trees. The grants came from the NB Regional Development Corporation - Community Investment Fund, more needs to be done. I recommend applying for grants for cemetery improvements.

Awards/Media - Although we have not received any awards or media attention, we have several notable persons buried at Riverview including war heroes and Members of Parliament. Information about them is provided in a booklet entitled "Stones by the River" compiled by William Clarke, a local historian who is also deceased.
