From 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. tomorrow, Newcastle Weed Warriors, Scout Troop 499, Hazelwood Cub Pack and volunteers will clean the Historic Coal Miner’s Cemetery, 7810 129th Ave. S.E., in preparation for its Memorial Day opening.

The cemetery is only opened on major holidays and by appointment. Volunteers and members from The Newcastle Historical Society maintain the cemetery.

As part of the cleaning, volunteers will remove downed branches and groom the loop trail inside the cemetery.

All are welcome to join in the effort. Volunteers should park at Lake Boren Park and walk north to the cemetery using the gravel path west of the park. The cemetery is located about 500 yards up the path.

Call Weed Warriors founder Grace Stiller at 228-7927 for more information or learn more here.
