February 11 work day

We worked out at East End for over 5 hours today. We had 13 volunteers and 3 visitors from channel 6. We spent the first hour cleaning up two trees that fell due to the wind the past week. We then did clearing and found a few grave markers. We filled the dumpster again.

The 3 visitors were from WTVR, CBS6, which is planning to air a story about the cemetery bill and the clean up going on at East End and Evergreen cemeteries. They shot some video this morning of volunteers working at East End.
