      Dear Bruce,

      Finding a company to do the maintenance is certainly part of what needs to
      be done, but maintenance would involve only cutting the weeds once every two
      or three weeks from May till the end of September. The initial cleanup
      requires the removal of bushes and at least the trimming of trees.
      Furthermore, at this point, we do not have anyone to contact and supervise a
      local company.

      I still think that:

      >> We need Information about:

      >> 2. Herbicides approved for use in the US and Europe, the legality of using

      >> 3. Generally approved mechanisms of cemetery maintenance and preservation.
      >> 4. How to establish a fund and society for the clean-up and preservation

      >> 5. Proper, prudent and legal means of managing the fund.
      >> 6. Existing organizations which may provide us with expertise and or money.

      I have received some information on points (4) and (5) and as soon as I have
      time, will send this to the Cz. - List.
