The Titanic Graves .
An Appeal by Peggy MacPhie for donations,
Fairview Cemetery Halifax , Nova Scotia
A trust fund has been established by the Halifax Regional Municipality for the care and maintenance of the Titanic graves. I'd like to ask that next time you get the urge to pick up the latest book about Titanic by some author looking to make a few bucks or the latest bit of movie merchandise or whatever, you consider putting it off until next pay day in favor of donating a few bucks so that the graves can be properly taken care of and preserved (i.e. weather wear, clearing out movie junk, vandalism, etc....)
Footnote: Anyone visiting these graves this summer on vacation, some advice: look for "Titanic Tours" operated by the tour operators: the 3 hour city tour is only 10 minutes in Fairview Cemetery. If you've got more time to spare, do your own research and walk/cab it, it's cheaper by about 30 Cdn pp.
