We would like to extend our thanks to our hardworking volunteers for their assistance at Lafayette Cemetery No. 1 this past Sunday, September 25th. We appreciate your service, and your dedication in helping to remove invasive species and vegetative growth!

The second phase of our clean-up in Squares 3 and 4 of Lafayette Cemetery No. 1 will be on Monday, October 24th, 2016 from 9:00am until 12:00pm. No special skills are needed to join us, but plan to wear clothing and footwear appropriate for potentially messy, outside work. We will supply gloves, hand tools and other cleaning materials and supplies.

Come join Save Our Cemeteries on Sunday, September 25th, 2016 and Monday October 2, 2016, and help make a difference in the community! We will be conducting clean-ups in Lafayette Cemetery No. 1 on both dates from 9:00am until 12:00pm, with the goal of making significant strides clipping ferns and invasive vegetation, and removing trash from the cemetery – but we can’t do it without help.

No special skills are needed to join us, but plan to wear clothing and footwear appropriate for potentially messy, outside work. We will supply gloves, hand tools and other cleaning materials and supplies.

If you are interested in volunteering for this clean-up, please email your contact information to stephanie@saveourcemeteries.org.
