Winthrop Maine Historical Society plans to host Anna Carll, cemetery sexton for Manchester, from 6 to 7 p.m. Thursday, June 10, via Zoom. A business meeting is to follow.

At a young age, Carll always looked forward to helping her grandmother in the family cemetery in Durham, according to a news release. She grew to enjoy walking around cemeteries and looking at the history on each stone. She was sad to see the broken stones in such need of repair.

Five years ago, Carll joined a local group called Maine Old Cemetery Association. Since then, she has attended workshops around Maine to learn the best practice for stone cleaning and repair.

The Zoom link is networkmaine.zoom.us/j/81096636540; the meeting ID is 810 9663 6540.
