Area youngster Chance Longton has a dilemma. He wants to do his Eagle Scout project by restoring an old cemetery located on Dickerson Run Hill. This cemetery appears to be abandoned and forlorn, but to complete his project, he needs to find out who owns the cemetery or if it is truly abandoned. It is not the Dickerson Run Union Cemetery, of that we are sure. It appears to have a number of very old graves dating back several hundred years. If anyone can give us any information on this cemetery, it would be greatly appreciated.

Keep smiling and have a great week.
