On Sunday September 18, Mount Hope Cemetery held the official opening of the cemetery annex. Councilor Tom Rittwage welcomed approximately 35 guests, which included family, friends and past cemetery committee members. Pastor Paul Shank dedicated the new cemetery which will have approximately 4000 plots when fully open. Two trees were dedicated in memory of Lloyd Campbell and Roy Rittwage. These gentlemen were instrumental in seeing this new section of the Mount Hope cemetery open. A third tree was generously donated by Lorne Park Nursery. For information or to purchase a plot in the new annex please contact Susan Brose Administrator/Custodian at 613-921-1679.
