Local Cemetery Hit By Hurricane Charley

People on the coast aren't the only folks experiencing headaches after Hurricane Charley's tantrum last week.

In the Beaufort County town of Chocowinity, the parishioners are praying for their property after a large tree fell in the middle of the Trinity Church Cemetery following strong winds when the tropical storm hit. The tree toppled a few head stones at the towns oldest cemetary, deeded to the church in 1860, but for the most part it only caused an eye sore and a financial nuisance to the Trinity Church.

The churches new pastor says the brunt of the large trees' removal has been estimated around $1200 dollars. They are asking the community for donations, or if there are local contractors willing to volunteer the work labor you can contact the church.
