Greg Borland, along with an assistant, came to Tidioute last week and spent hours donating their time and knowledge to re-setting the stones at the Tidioute Cemetery.
Vandals decided to wreck havoc on the cemetary and did several thousands of dollars of damage on April 19.
Work by Borland was completed in one full day of hard work.
There were seven large stones weighing close to a ton each and several smaller stones tipped over.
Tidioute Cemetary Association appreciates Borland's work to reset the monuments.
Anyone with information on this incident can still contact the Crimestoppers at 1-800-832-7463 (toll free).
All Southwest Warren County Municipal Association customers in Tidioute will receive their monthly water bill in an envelope this month.

Conservation Day 2010
Tidioute Borough would like to thank all who participated in the Conservation Day 2010.
This annual event (this the second year) is when students of the Tidioute Community Charter School work along side the Borough Maintenance employees on community improvement projects.
Teachers join in as well as supervise the children.
A special thank you to Delores Timco who supervised the planting of the planters again this year and offers instruction as well as picking the flowers and designing the planters, Dan and Sue Salm who kept and saved plants from last year in their basement which in turn saved the borough alot of money as the flowers are purchased from the borough budget each year. Also a special thank you to Kelley McKean who organizes this event as well as the Memorial Brick Fund Raiser for the Yearbook at Tidioute Community Charter School.
This year the projects included planting flowers in 22 planters throughout town, re-painting the crosswalks throughout town, completing the brick path or walkway to the Gazebo in Picture Show Park with the most recent order of Memorial Bricks and picking up garbage in the Park and Boat Launch areas. The Student made quick work of all the projects with beautiful results and so the Tidioute Borough would like to say "Thank You" to all for a job well done.
