Budapest Cemetery Cleanup - Nov 3, 2008

Norma Rothschadl - Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church Youth Leader

Clean up of the Budapest cemetery was spearheaded by Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church's Youth group and other members of the church located in Carrolton, GA. Members of the local Chamber of Commerce and the Historical Society were present.  There were about 50 visitors to the cemetery Sunday, most were busy working hard to clean up the very overgrown cemetery.  I was among those who weren't working, but I took before and after photos to show what a great job these dedicated workers did. An All Souls Mass concluded the day.  Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Carrollton, GA

I met Karen Higgins, President of the Haralson County Historical Society and I shared a mutual interest in the original colonist of the little town of Budapest.
