A brand-new welcome

A brand-new welcome

The Penobscot Bay Cemetery now welcomes visitors with a granite sign, thanks to four “regular citizens,” who asked the question, “Why is there no sign for the only public cemetery in Penobscot?” Sylvia Tapley, Marilyn Tapley, Roxanne Grindle and Janice McKay proposed the sign to the town selectmen last fall; voters approved it at town meeting in March, and in May the sign was erected, with flowers and flags planted in the following days.
