Description: 
We are going to clean and repair our cemeteries!
We will be raising sunken stones, photographing grave markers, repairing stones, and helping to ensure that the people buried here are treated with respect.
 
There will be light tasks, as well as ones for getting dirty.
 
It might be a little warm, so please dress appropriately. Water will be provided. Participants are encouraged to bring reusable water containers, as well as their own lunch or snack if desired.
