DAR grant to help restore historic South Farmington Friends Cemetery chapel

The South Farmington Friends Cemetery got a little red, white and blue attention — and some needed financial assistance.

The National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution, through sponsorship of the Canandaigua chapter of the organization, presented a $1,000 donation to the South Farmington Friends Cemetery Foundation on Tuesday for its historic chapel facade restoration project.

Canandaigua DAR Regent Glena Larson praised a “wonderful group of volunteers” who came together to restore the cemetery and its chapel after it was damaged during a tornado in 2015.
