Lillian Corbin took these pictures of the Memorial Service at St. Peter's cemetery. Col. James M. Johnson, dressed in the uniform of the militia that fought in the American Revolution, brought a military flavor to the proceedings. He called attention to the 150th Infantry Regiment that was mostly drawn from Dutchess County that fought in the Civil War. Johnson taught military history at West Point and is now Executive Director of The Hudson River Valley Review that publishes papers on Hudson River history.

St. Peter's Memorial Day in its cemetery brought out a crowd.

Moby Mudge received a gift for his service as the chair of the Cemetery Committee from Chris Mann, the Senior Warden.

Young parishioners rather enjoyed the rural cemetery.
