a Difference." This "Make A Difference Day" project will focus not only

and general cleanup, but also on building connections between
students and community members by sharing memories of the cemetery.

those buried in the cemetery, or knowledge of the cemetery's history is
invited to share their stories.
The workday will run from 9 a.m.- 3 p.m., with a simple lunch being
provided for participants. Those interested in helping with the cleanup

or a weed-whacker.
