    Saunemin Mayor Bob Bradford has been contacted by producer Fiona Ni Eidhin about filming the Memorial Day services on Monday, May 25, 2015 at Sunny Slope Cemetery in Saunemin, IL.  A three person production crew from Snag Breac Films, which is based in Spiddal County Galway, Ireland, will be filming a half-hour documentary about the life of Albert D. J. Cashier (born Jennie Hodgers) and whose name will be read from the roster of Civil War veterans buried in Sunny Slope Cemetery. This documentary will be titled “Jennie Hodgers – Saidhdiur Lincoln (translated Jennie Hodgers – Lincoln’s Soldier).

    Ms. Ni Eidhin and the production crew hope to conduct interviews with Saunemin residents and tour the Cashier home and other places of interest in the village. When completed, the documentary will be broadcast on the Irish Language Channel TG4 later this year. Anyone in the area who would like to share information with the company may contact them at snagbreacfilms@gmail.com or phone the Village of Saunemin at 815-832-4334.  The village will host the international  guests over the Memorial Day weekend.
