Aerial view of Cedar Hill Cemetery, Hartford, CT

DATE & TIME:  Sunday, July 19 @ 9:30 am

Hartford’s nationally recognized Cedar Hill Cemetery was established in 1864 and comprises 270 acres with more than 320,000 graves and memorials.

Since the cemetery is so large, we will be driving around and stopping.

Assigned subjects choose by 7/3

Dear All,

Here is the link for the revised Covid Survey for Assigned Subjects. We redid the list with subjects that did not require travel. Most are subjects that would be good at home or if you are safely doing photo excursions, but we redid the list so that everyone has opportunities with any of the chosen topics, rather than ones that required travel.

Please vote for your 8 top picks: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/NHCC2021COVID

Please complete this by this Friday, July 3rd. I would like to have the Assigned Subject list ready soon as a few members have already asked for it!

Thanks, and happy Fourth of July!

Denise
