Clean-Up and Decoration Day
Allison Cemetery at Beantown
When: September 4, 2004
Where: Allison Cemetery at Beantown
Time: As early as you can get there.
Weather: If the weather is bad on September 4, we will move it to September 11, same time and place.
What to bring: A covered dish for a pot-luck dinner, a strong back and willing hands, tools to clean the cemetery, brushes to clean the tombstones, etc., and anything else you think could be useful.
We need people who are willing to work.
The cemetery needs to be mowed, weeded, and trimmed.
The tombstones need to have the moss, algae, and pollution cleaned off of them.
Some of the tombstones are leaning badly, so we need men with muscle and pry-bars to straighten them before they completely fall over.
We need flowers for all the graves.
We need flags for the veterans graves.
We have footstones which need to be reset at ground level to make mowing easier and neater.
We have fence and stakes. We need people who can build fence.
The hydrangea and rhododendrons need to be pruned.
Tools needed: Chainsaw, lawnmowers, weedeaters, hammers, saws, nails, screws, drills, pry-bars, scrub brushes, weed-killer, hoes, rakes, post-hole diggers, etc.
We also need covered dishes for the potluck, chairs, and folding tables. We have one dining canopy available.
If we can get enough people who are interested and willing to work, we could also clean the graves in the cemetery in the Germany Cove too. Our ancestors took meticulous care of these cemeteries, we should be able to do as well as they did.
If you are physically unable to work, please come, sit and share the family history with the younger people.
We're not asking for money, just your labor and your company. Also, if you have family pictures you'd like to share, please bring copies to swap.
