Area Scouts continue preservation at cemetery

Members of Boy Scout Troop No. 49 recently helped preserve Pine Brook Cemetery, Tinton Falls, a 150-year-old cemetery owned by St. Thomas AME Zion Church, Tinton Falls. The African-American cemetery had been inactive for several years.

Its preservation was performed by David Champion as his Eagle project in 1998. Scouts from Troop 49 continued the preservation by trimming the brush to reveal even the smallest grave markers in the cemetery.

Troop 49 has 43 active members from five communities and is sponsored by Army Garrison Fort Monmouth.
