April 19th work day

We worked out at East End for about 5 hours today. We had big group of 40 out helping. We had 4 from Hands on Richmond, 5 community members, 6 regulars and the rest from the University of Richmond. A. C. and several students hauled a bunch of tires up to near the front of the cemetery where we will get a dumpster from the county to put them in. That was hard and dirty work. We also got several plots cleared and/or cleaned up with several gravestones uncovered. A UR students came out who has ancestors buried at East End and we able to show him where the family plots were since they had been uncovered.

Here are the tires that were moved.
