Sept. 19 work day

We worked out at East End for about 3 1/2 hours this morning. We had 33 volunteers 22 were from UPS Freight through Hands on Richmond. We also had 6 others from Hands on Richmond, 2 new volunteers and 3 regulars. We got a bunch of weeds whacked, plots cleaned and cleared and some grave markers uncovered.

    I just saw a piece on World News about your cemetery work. I just have to tell you that my first impression of the now wooded area was that I was overwhelmed by it’s beauty! I’m wondering if your leadership on this mission would consider not so much “clearing” but sculpting this precious sight into a place that would encourage family and citizens to linger in it’s beauty to consider the lives that were so much a part of our history. Please check out the William Ricketts (sp?) Sanctuary in Melbourne, Australia. It is a wooded area scattered with beautiful sculpture that reveres the aboriginal people of that area.
    I applaud your work.

      We would welcome your help. You can just show up on a day when we are working if there are just a few people. If you have a group, please let me know ahead of time so I bring enough tools, etc. Check out the Volunteer Information tab for more information and the Work Day Calendar tab to see when we are working.
