    Would like to be involved in your effort. We rode out today and viewed both Woodland and East End Cemetaries . It was overwhelming to us and unbelievable that it has been left to such disrepair.Please let us know how to be a part of this mission.We saw that you are working this Monday but we are not retired yet and not able to help then.Is this something we could do on some of our available days? Would love to meet with you as well .Thank you, Robin K.Walton also email Robinkwalto@gmail.com

        Boy Scouts are always looking for Community Service and Eagle Scout projects as part of rank advancements. Boy Scout Troop 5, Shenrapawa District, Shenandoah Area Council, has produced 16 Eagles; and our projects have been for Churches, Virginia and Municipal Parks. I’m surprised Capitol District BSA, Heart of Virginia Council, hasn’t contacted you about Boy Scouts helping you. Can I have one of our Troop leaders contact you about work they (scouts 11 to 17 years old) can do. i.e. brush and tree removal, uncovering and cleaning headstones/markers, fencing repairs; sections currently being reclaimed, and sections needing to start work. The magnitude of your restoration appears to me that could easily encompass our entire District and/or Council. Our Scoutmaster, troop leaders and Council Executive would need to meet with you and look over cemetery to evaluate what and when work can begin. We would likely have weekend camping and bring our Scout trailer. We will be camping in July at National Jamboree near Parkersburg WV.
