February 28 at the cemetery

Did some cemetery exploring this afternoon with Melissa and Justin and Brian and Erin. We explored some of East End and Evergreen. Brian and Erin stayed to do some work while the rest of us went to Dry Bridge Court cemetery and met Bruce there. We explored this little cemetery and then Melissa and Justin and I went on to Woodland Cemetery. It is looking pretty good right now. It is the best I have seen it. We also had a visitor at East End who wants to be a volunteer.

We worked out East End for about and hour and a half this afternoon with Erin Cole. We cleared off five Randolph family gravestones and opened up more of the road in the old section.

February 22 at the East End

I went out to East End this afternoon for an hour or so with Elizabeth Wilson. There was still too much snow to do much and I had to be careful not to get my truck stuck. I did cut through all the ivy vines on a big tree we recently came across so the ivy will start dying. Saw Kate Scott and Erin Palmer out there.

Unfortunately I also noticed that someone had dumped some furniture along the side of the road going in.

Picture is of snow on one leg of the ‘U’ road.

February 8 work day

We worked out at East End for about 3 1/2 hours this afternoon. We had 3 students from Kim Gower’s class at the University of Richmond and 6 regulars. We found several gravestones and pretty much got the corner by Gillies Creek Recycling all cleared. Some of us spent about an hour exploring a little bit of Evergreen Cemetery after we finished at East End.

February 6 work day

We worked out at East End for over 3 1/2 hours this afternoon. There were 11 students from professor Kim Gower’s class at University of Richmond. They got a lot of brush cleared. They also uncovered/cleared so many gravestones that I ran out of water to clean them. There were at least 20 that were uncovered/cleared. We are getting the dumpster pretty full but it still has some more room.
