Vermont Cemetery Association

The fundamental purpose for which this association exists is to inspire continued effort toward the improvement of Vermont cemeteries. To this end it seems essential that we declare the principles and ethics upon which rests the successful administration of our affairs.

We believe that it is necessary in such a declaration that we here condemn the practice of selling cemetery property for speculative or investment purposes, or upon the promise of re-sale at a profit. That such a practice is detrimental to public interest is self-evident. It defies the fundamental concept upon which the development of our industry has been predicated, and constitutes a threat to our advancement by abusing the privileges and prerogatives which we administer as a public trust.

Good Day Everyone,

The update for H3 is that it has passed out of the house committee and will be up for a vote on the house floor next week. Please if you can, call or email your Representatives and ask them to vote NO. We need more time to find out all the logistics for shallow depth burial in Vermont and especially in the winter time.

I have attached my concerns. Some of which are my notes that I have shared with the House Committee of General, Housing and Military Affairs.

Thank you.
