Historical Society hosts April 26 cemetery cleanup
April 16, 2014
NEW — 6 a.m. April 16, 2014
The Newcastle Historical Society will host an April 26 work party to clean and spruce up the city’s iconic cemetery.
Volunteers are invited to help cut, collect and haul away brush. The city will provide tools, but attendees should bring gloves and wear sturdy shoes.
The cemetery work party, at 7811 129th Ave. S.E., is from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Volunteers can choose to help through the whole session, or just as long as they are able.
Parking is limited, so attendees are encouraged to park at Lake Boren Park and walk to the cemetery from the Lake Boren upper loop, which ends on 129th Avenue Southeast.
The goal is to clear the underbrush in an effort to find hidden cemetery markers.
