Save the Evans City Cemetery Chapel

Gary Streiner and Russ "Johnny" Streiner have been attempting to raise funds to repair the Evans City Chapel, which appeared in the opening cemetery scene of George Romero's Night of the Living Dead (1968).  It is one of the only remaining landmarks from the movie and is currently in disrepair.  Unless $50,000 can be raised to renovate it, the structure will be torn down.  One of the fund raising efforts has been the publication of Stories from the Chapel, an anthology comprised of short fiction, poetry, and artwork dedicated to the Evans City Chapel.  All proceeds from the anthology go toward the restoration of the chapel. 

I picked up a copy of the book at the InfectScranton convention two weeks ago and have really enjoyed it.  Everyone who has contributed to the anthology has done a great job, and have poured their hearts into the project. So please support a worthy cause as well as a dedicated group of amateur authors and artists by purchasing either a print version or the Kindle version of Stories of the Chapel

If you don't, then they'll be coming to get you.
