A small ceremony was held Tuesday at Southside Cemetery where Fulton City Councilman Steve Moore and Debo Funeral Home General Manager John Pautz welcomed the addition of two new granite plaques on columns marking the cemetery's entrance.
The plaques were the latest result of an ongoing project to repair and restore fixtures on the cemetery grounds, Moore said. It started by restoring and rebuilding the columns that had surrounded the cemetery, as well as updating them with electric lamps.
"(The columns) were crumbling before and we decided to fix it up," said Moore. "We decided against a fence because the maintenance department said that's hard to maintain, but we put the columns up around the entrance."
