Members of the El Monte Cemetery Association expressed thanks to Stephen Gill; Chairman and CEO of M.C. Gill Corporation, for his generous gift of $10,000 towards ongoing maintenance of the Historic Savannah Cemetery located on Valley Boulevard. Savannah Memorial Park, founded in 1850, is the resting place of many of the original pioneers of the San Gabriel Valley.

Mr. Gill gave a similar donation to the association in 2007 for a wrought-iron security fence, another donation in 2009 to close their budget shortfall and a donation in 2010 towards operational expenses. An engraved stone is in place at the cemetery entrance acknowledging support from Stephen Gill and M. C. Gill Corporation.
