So, some may wonder what DOES Mayor June Caul do on a Sunday afternoon? Well, I’m about to tell you what I saw her doing this past Sunday, July 5 at 12:45 p.m.
I was driving past the Fort Frances Cemetary and lo and behold, I spotted two cars near the mortuary. So of course I had to go in and see what was going on, because one of the cars I recognized was my friend, June’s.
There she was, on her knees, pulling weeds off one of the graves, along with her daughter, Jaquee! I asked how long she had been there and she said “since 11.15.”
Both she and Jacquee were doing a wonderful job, not only pulling weeds off the graves, but also pulling out the grass on the sides of the graves and tombestones. I had a commitment at 2 o’clock, but decided to go and get my weedeater and lend a hand, for a bit.
Just before 2 o’clock, I left and returned two hours later, to find June still down on her knees, pulling weeds and flattening out the soil. I asked how many she had done, and to my shock, she said 30! WOW! That was an impressive and amazing number, but I know how very hard June works on her own property, so I wasn’t really surprised.
She probably would have stayed longer, but unfortunately it started to rain, so she had no choice but to pack up and leave. I asked her what prompted her to take on that task on such a humid day.
She said that she was disappointed how the graves looked when she drove by. I must say that the grass, cut by the Town, looked lovely. And now, when you drive by that corner, it definitely looks amazing.
Thanks June for continuing to care for our community. You ROCK!
