Our Summer Youth Project workers have been working hard to beautify our cemetery. We have been using a biological, eco-friendly solution to remove years of lichen and dirt build up.
We have also leveled, realigned, and repaired the loose and broken stones. During this ongoing process I have tried to use opportunity to educate our youth on whose stones they are working on.
It was important to me to make this fun and an educational work environment giving little bits of history about who we come from and how they shaped our grounds and preserved our way of life.
This is an ongoing project, so there will be more before and after pictures to come.
