On October 2, October 8, October 15, and October 29, Boy Scout Joshua Lopes of Canton Troop 77 will be working on his Eagle Scout project in the Melrose Cemetery.

The purpose of Joshua’s project is to create a database that identifies the location and name of the veterans buried in all sections on the east of the WWII Veterans memorial. In order to complete this project, Joshua will be enlisting the help of a number of volunteers. These volunteers will in no way alter any veteran plaque or burial site. They will simply be recording the information on the plaque and input this information into central database. Areas within the Cemetery may be delineated temporarily by small flags. Upon completion, the database will become the property of the Park Department and will enable the cemetery to quickly search and locate veterans buried in these sections.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this project please contact my office at

Thank you,
