July 9 work day

We worked out at East End for over 6 hours today. We had 15 volunteers of which 7 were regulars and the rest community members. A couple of the volunteers were out for the first time. We also had 6 visitors and 5 goats. We mowed, cut weeds, recleared plots and hauled trash and the goats chomped away on the vegetation.

One of our visitors was Eric McCarthy from West End Lawn & Garden. He brought his tractor mower out and bush-hogged the roads in East End and Evergreen cemeteries. Thank you Eric.

Another visitor was state senator Donald McEachin. We recently rented a small storage unit near the cemetery. Senator McEachin generously paid the rental on our unit for 10 months. We will be storing our tools in it. Thank you senator McEachin.

I would also like to thank Nelsen Funeral Home employees for volunteering at the cemetery yesterday and for services donated today.
