Worked out at East End for 7 hours today for Martin Luther King day. We had 152 volunteers out helping. Many were from the University of Richmond but also quite a few community members. They got a lot cleared and found several grave markers. We have a giant brush pile now.  We also unveiled the new sign at the entrance to the cemeteries.canon_019084
