Rose Hill Cemetery is still in need | News, Sports, Jobs

If you are from Altoona, you are likely familiar with the plight of many local cemeteries in our area.

I am the President of Rose Hill Cemetery Company and invite you to visit Rose Hill to see the progress we have made in restoring and caring for this cemetery to be the place those buried here deserve.

The year was difficult, the price of gasoline only increasing our expenses.

We have a loyal group of financial supporters and a handful of loyal volunteers who have helped us restore Rose Hill to what it should be.

By the end of this year, our funds to maintain Rose Hill will be nearly exhausted. If you can provide financial support, we would appreciate it.

We created Friends of Rose Hill Cemetery, a 501c3 nonprofit organization to support Rose Hill Cemetery.

This makes your contribution tax deductible.

Many longtime citizens of Altoona, as well as over two thousand veterans of many wars, rest at Rose Hill.

Please help us continue this mission to restore and care for this cemetery, for those who rest here deserve nothing less.

Your tax-deductible contributions can be made payable to: Friends of Rose Hill Cemetery, 1209 22nd Avenue, Altoona, PA 16601.
