July 21 work day

We had a great morning at East End Cemetery. We had 98 volunteers from the the West End Assembly of God church, 2 community volunteers and 5 core team members. We got a lot of maintenance done. A lot of weeds were whacked and mowed, fallen trees and limbs cut up, and gravestones cleaned. We also found a few grave markers. In the midst of all the weeds we even found a hibiscus blooming.

Five years later

The first day we worked at East End Cemetery in 2013, I took a set of pictures that I was able to stitch together to create a panorama. I tried to stand in about the same spot 5 years later and take the same set of pictures and create another panorama. Below is the result.

June 30 work day

It was a warm day but we had 25 volunteers out helping today for about 3 hours. We had community members, Metro Richmond Area Young Democrats, Henrico Democrats and core team members. We did a lot of cutting and pulling of weeds and got spring growth off of several plots. We also got one tree cut up and ran two trimmers. The areas we worked in look much better. Our thanks to all that helped this morning.
