The New Fairfield Cemetery Association has raised about half of the money needed for storm clean up at the historic cemetery.  The New Fairfield Community Thrift Shop donated $5,000, with the estimate for clean up at $14,000.  The cemetery across from Town Hall sustained extensive damage from the May macroburst.  Three large spruce trees were uprooted, a large tree was broken and the tops of two other trees were sheared off.  Multiple headstones were damaged.  The markers date back to the mid-1700s.
