September 11, 2006 - September 9th Results

The turn out for the September 9th clean-up was excellent. No thunderstorms came through while all the volunteers worked hard and made more improvements to the cemetery. A member of the Newman family had come to help out as well and expressed a warm appreciation for those who came to help take care of her departed ones. All of the volunteers should feel very proud of themselves! Besides the enjoyment of doing something good for a place that has been severely neglected, many facets of nature were experienced such as frogs, toads, humming birds, deer, snakes, mice, and even a very large, colorful, beautiful spider that is rarely seen showed itself as the weeds were trimmed.

Although the cemetery still has a long way to go it was extremely wonderful to see so many people show up in the early morning hours. A lot was accomplished early in the day and if it wasn’t for a piece of rental equipment breaking down much more could have been taken care of. A special thank you goes out to those of you who attended and to those of you who truly wanted to make it but couldn’t due to various circumstances.

We hope to see all of you again next year and welcome many more volunteers to join in and help make every clean-up a success. Also, be sure to review some of the improvements by visiting the photo gallery. We can always use a dedicated photographer to go around and take countless photographs so don’t be shy and volunteer today!
