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.
