Nov. 22 work day

We had a great day this afternoon at East End. We had 173 volunteers from Veritas School, 3 from VCU, 2 community members, 3 regulars and 5 goats. We got a lot of vegetation cleared and either hauled to the dumpster, which was filled, hauled to brush pile or fed to the goats. Many grave markers were uncovered. Thanks to Mark and Kristi for helping coordinate all these volunteers and thanks to Veritas School for coming out for a second year.

Nov. 12 work day

We worked out at East End for over 4 hours today. We had 33 volunteers from Midlothian Jack and Jill, Cool Spring Baptist Church, VCU Sociology classes and several regulars. We worked mostly on maintenance today. The Jack and Jill group cleaned up a lot of the brush growing at the entrance corner behind the sign. It looks much nicer now. The others worked on clearing and weed eating along the ‘P’ road and got a lot done and found a few new grave markers while doing it.
