Presentation by the Longmeadow Cemetery Association (LCA)

December 15th @ 11:30 AM, Bailey Hall
Recently the LCA had a LIDAR scan* done of the oldest section of the cemetery. What they found is both surprising and important to our congregation.

Come and see the images of the graves and the exact locations of colonial remains. This new information changes our understanding of our history and of how the church uses its land.

FCC will utilize this information to vote on land use at the Annual meeting.

*“LIDAR, which stands for Light Detection and Ranging, is a remote sensing method that uses light in the form of a pulsed laser to measure ranges (variable distances) to the Earth. These light pulses generate precise, three-dimensional information about the shape of the earth’s characteristics. (oceanservice.noaa.gov/facts/lidar.html)”
