Sept. 17 work day

We had 7 VCU students (AFAM 491) and 3 community members work about 4 hours to clear several plots. They uncovered a metal marker and three new grave stones. We also re-discovered two other grave stones that had become overgrown. We were able to move 2 large stumps that were dumped in the road. A photo journalist  enroute to NY stopped by to take pictures and will be posting pictures up on Instagram.
