We worked out at East End for about 3 hours this morning. There were 5 of us regulars and a family member looking for his mother’s grave. We mowed, whacked weeds, cleared ivy and cut some trees. We made a dent.

June 13th work day

We worked out at East End for about 4 hours this morning. We had 3 volunteers from Hands on Richmond and 6 of our regulars. Ins spite of the head and humidity, we cleared plots and found several markers, we mowed and we whacked weeds. We also had 2 visitors. Mary Lamb Shelden came by with a very generous donation of tools from a VCU Service Learning Partnership grant and we had a family member of of a family buried at East End come by with cold water and snacks for us volunteers.

Here are all the new tools loaded in to my truck.

May 24th work day

I worked out at East End this morning for about and hour and a half. Four of the other regulars were still out there working when I left. We are doing mainly maintenance. One family stopped by their family plot last night after I left.

The landscaping around the new sign looks great.

May 23rd work day

We worked out at East End for 8+ hours today. We had 7 volunteers – 1 VCU student and 6 regulars. We got a lot of weed whacking done, we put flags on all veterans’ graves that we have found. We landscaped around the new sign, I sprayed for poison ivy, we picked up trash, etc. We also had several visitors. Thanks to Eddie Baird for the roses and flag for the new sign. We didn’t have any family members visit today.
