He began his project by seeking funding and quotes in early July. His project received the needed funding through Hancock-Wood Electric Cooperative’s Operation Round-Up and the North Baltimore American Legion.

David Richmond of North Baltimore, spent many hours working on Noah’s project. His team of devoted workers included Yancy Richmond, Joe Gazarek and Doyle Griffith. Doug Wickard, (employee of The Village of North Baltimore) was also instrumental in the smooth completion of the project. They all volunteered their time to help Noah complete his project.

The North Baltimore Garden Club has offered to landscape around the pillars in the spring.

These men and organizations are a reminder to Noah and his family, just how blessed we are to live in a community of such giving and supportive people.

Noah is a sophomore at North Baltimore High School. He is the son of Kirk Pelton (NB) and Jim and Mary Casey (NB). He is also the grandson of Mike and Diane Julien (NB), Pat Huffman (Findlay) and the late Butch Pelton.

Along with Boy Scouts, Noah is active in Cross Country, Track, Student Council, Tri-M and he is a percussionist in the band. He is also a member of Holy Family Catholic Church.

Please take a moment to visit the cemetery and see the completed pillars.
