March 21 work day

We had 55 volunteers at East End today. Most volunteers were UR and VCU students. We also had 1 student from Richmond Community High School and her mother and we had 4 regulars and the parents of one our regulars. We removed a lot of ivy and uncovered several grave markers.

We also had a visitor, a Mr. Bell. His father and grandparents are buried at East End. Fortunately they are buried in an area we have cleared. He intended to clear off their plot but only needed to rake some leaves. He was very pleased with how the cemetery is looking and made a generous donations to the clean up effort.
