We continued to clear summer growth from around the gravestones, we cut down a poison ivy covered dead tree and at the end of the day, as we were wrapping up, found 3 gravestones. It was a productive morning. We also had a family member who came to visit his grandmother’s grave.

Jan. 20 MLK day of service

We had a really great Day of Service at East End Cemetery today with two shifts of volunteers. In spite of a wind chill in the teens in the morning we had over 40 volunteers for the morning shift. The afternoon shift had over 85 volunteers. Both shifts cleared ground vegetation, but ivy off of trees and removed fallen limbs. The areas worked on look really good now. The second shift also found and cleaned off 2 gravestones.

Our thanks to everyone who braved the cold and came out to help clean up and restore this historic cemetery.
