Help clean up

Breck cemetery

BRECKENRIDGE – The Town of Breckenridge will join with its citizens Tuesday for Valley Brook Cemetery Clean Up Day. It’s an event that will make the clean-up job a little easier and a lot more fun, as well as provide an opportunity for community involvement.

Volunteers are the key to making this effort successful. The event starts at 10 a.m. with a brief overview of the ongoing preservation efforts in the cemetery, and concludes at 3 p.m. Clean-up projects include planting shrubbery, raking, planting grass, clearing ditches and digging weeds. The Town of Breckenridge will provide refreshments and lunch.
