Clayville Cemetery

Clayville Cemetery Clean-up

Thursday, October 8 AND

Friday, October 9, 2015

 at 10:00 am


Students from the Met School will be visiting Foster to assist in cleaning up the Clayville Cemetery.


We can use all of the support we can arrange as the students, while enthusiastic, are not allowed to use some types of equipment (i.e., chainsaws), so some adult assistance is required.  We could also use a truck or shredder to deal with the brush that will be cut down, as there is no good place to build a brush pile at the cemetery.


This is a big project.  Any help will be welcome.
