When we pulled into the cemetery grounds on Saturday morning a little before 10 a.m., we could not believe what we were seeing. The sun could not have been beaming as brightly as our smiles. The cemetery was filled with people working at cleaning up various sites throughout. Some you having been there since 8 a.m., others staying until after 4. We had hoped for but, hadn’t anticipate so large a crowd, especially given the weather we had been having throughout the week.

We are still receiving calls from folks who want to come out and help between now and Memorial Day. Others that helped out on Friday and Saturday offering more help. Your generosity has been so heartwarming.

Everyone could see the need was greater than even the large group that so generously came and gave of their time and effort could possibly accomplish in a day’s time. Every single person spent hours racking, trimming away dead vegetation, hauling and stacking piles along the roadways.

Your hard work is noted and much appreciated. Thank you for choosing to spend your day with us. We know that there were many places you could have chosen to donate you time. We enjoyed meeting all of you and are pleased to see that others found this to be a worthwhile endeavor.
