Over the weekend, the Cemetery Restoration Committee of Patchogue dedicated new headstones for six Civil War Veterans at Lakeview Cemetery.
It was the second time in two years the group has replaced damaged or missing gravestones in the cemetery off West Main Street.
The new stones were funded by a U.S. Veterans Administration program, which is coordinated by a local member and former Patchogue Village trustee, Lynn Davis.
“It was a beautiful ceremony last year and I’m glad we’ve had the help from the VA to continue this process of honoring our veterans with new headstones,” said Davis.
This year’s ceremony was held on Saturday at 11 a.m.
