Tom Ralston spoke at the ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday, October 28, 2022. He spoke about how inpsiring the Evergreen Cemetery’s Renaissance has been, and how that inspiration was contagious. It inspired Tom, his concrete company and employees, and all who contributed to the project.
Evergreen Cemetery is one of the oldest public cemeteries in California, and it is the final home to many of Santa Cruz County's early pioneers, leaders, and makers of history. The Cemetery is owned and managed by the Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History (MAH) with the leadership of a group of energized volunteers.
