SPECIAL IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS

Capital improvement projects like tree purchase and planting, the irrigation system, and roadway upgrading are subject to targeted fund raising and corporate support.

NB Power Coleson Cove Generating Station has contributed annual financial support to the tree planting program and grounds improvement projects like roadway levelling, pictured opposite.

In-kind equipment and manpower support from corporate partners like Maguire Excavating, Paul and Bruce Martin Ltd., and Irving Equipment have been key to the overall capital upgrade program on the cemeteries.

Why We Need Your Support

Annual costs to maintain and preserve the cemetery grounds have averaged $18-$20,000 per year over the previous maintenance seasons (2011-2015). The annual maintenance and operations budget provides for fertilizing and seasonal mowing and grass trimming, annual garden flowers and planting, grass seed, levelling with topsoil and over seeding, straightening and repairs of (older) damaged memorial stones, and tree and shrub trimming, equipment fuel, oil and maintenance, and electrical power.

To do all this work, and keep the cemeteries in good shape requires wages, equipment, gas and oil, flowers, shrubs trees and supplies.

Approximately 50-60% of the funds needed for maintenance have been raised through annual charitable contributions from lot owners, and others who have family members and ancestors buried in the cemeteries. Donations are made in response to an annual mailing campaign, and by funeral memorials placed for departed loved ones. The balance of maintenance funding has been covered through summer student employment programs, sponsored by government.

The goal of Lorneville and Seaview Cemeteries is to have charitable donations account for 100% of annual grounds maintenance expenses. Availability of government grants are not certain year over year e.g. Lorneville and Seaview Cemeteries did not receive a NB SEED Program summer student placement in 2015 as it had in prior years.

We really need your financial help to properly maintain the cemeteries. Please take a look at the Photo Section of the web site to see mumerous before and after photos.

Perpetual Care Fund

Lorneville and Seaview Cemeteries has an established “Perpetual Care Fund” to help provide for ongoing maintenance costs, and monies received from all new grave lot sales are placed in this fund. However, investment returns provide only a small fraction of annual operating expenses, given the small size of the fund and minimal rates of return that are currently paid.

If you are interested in adding funds for “Perpetual Care” of the cemeteries in the long term please indicate below.

Let us know how we can help you determine a suitable endowment or a donation that suits your particular interests. We welcome your ideas for projects or events.
