About

The Friends of Eastern Cemetery Volunteer Days are every Sunday April-December (weather permitting) from 11am until 4pm, early birds are welcome! Please make it if you can, at whatever time you can. A big part of what we do is cut the grass, remove overgrown weeds, pick up tree debris and garbage over the almost 30 acres. It would be huge if people could bring lawn mowers, weed eaters (especially weed eaters!!), rakes, chainsaws, limb nippers, really most any yard tools would be very helpful, if you don't have any that's ok we still have plenty for everybody of all skills and capabilities to do!

As we get caught up with the yard work we will start branching off into gravestone repair, cleaning and leveling as well as tending to other structures that need repair on this historic cemetery's property.

If you would like to help, but aren't necessarily into doing manual labor please contact us or come to the volunteer day and let us know as we are looking for people to help with event coordination and arts & crafts, if you would like to help, we have a place for you!!!

Please check our Facebook page for up to date information.
