HARTLAND —Hartland residents, natives and friends are invited to come celebrate with the Hartland Historical Society at 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 19, for the re-dedication of the Fuller Corner Cemetery.

This spring the historical society completed the restoration of the historic cemetery that holds the graves of some of Hartland’s earliest settlers and their descendants, according to a news release from the society. Among them are veterans of the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, Civil War and World War II, and service in several branches of the military.

The Fuller Corner Cemetery is on Beans Corner Road, between its intersections with Canaan Road (Route 23) and Fuller Corner Road. This is the second such project undertaken by the small historical society with the aid of fundraising and a town contribution. Two years ago, a re-dedication was held at the Ireland Cemetery on Pleasant Street in town, according to the release.

Fundraising is continuing to enable restorations to be completed, as needed, at the remaining town cemeteries. Donations are appreciated and can be mailed to the HHS at P.O. Box 173, Hartland, ME 04943. To help with this project, consider a membership in historical society at $10 per family, payable annually in October. The society meets monthly the second Monday of each month at the Irving Tanning Community Center at 6 p.m. The next meeting is on Monday, Sept. 14, to complete plans for the Sept. 19 program.
