We made it! A wonderful $200 donation from Matt Baskerville of Baskerville-Reeves Funeral Homes helped us reach our goal!

And right behind that was a timely and generous contribution of $200 from Melanie Bell, as well as a very generous check in the amount of $500 (which had been delayed in the mail) from our friends at R.W. Patterson Funeral Home and Crematory.

Our sincere thanks to you all!

The Bohemian National of Braidwood is at “that age” (136 years old) when some of our trees need big help.

Please take a look at the pictures below. Some trees have branches that are dead and ready to come down, and others have “passed on” and need to be fully removed. We have been addressing this problem little by little for the last few years with branches (some REALLY LARGE) and some full trunks down. But now we must get in front of the problem to prevent injury to families and visitors as well as damage to monuments.

Will you please help? We must raise $4,500 (four thousand, five hundred dollars) as soon as possible to bring in a professional tree company.

We have reached our goal as of 7:25pm June 30! Thanks to all!

Tomorrow, July 1 director and sexton Kerry Sharp will schedule the tree company to get to work!
