We worked at East End for 4+ hours today. Veritas School came out in 2 shifts – one in the morning and one in the afternoon. We had a total of about 81 volunteers including 2 core team members. We cleared vines and ivy off of plots, cut down small trees (a favorite activity for some students) and found several gravestones including one with a conch shell next to it. Our brush pile is much bigger. In between shifts we got about a 1/4 inch of snow.
