FELLOW SCOUTS AND PARENTS
The time has come for my eagle scout project and I need your assistance. The date of my project is September 6thand 7th. It will be at the cemetery on Forest Avenue and Willowbrook Road. The entrance to use is on Willowbrook Road.
My project will consist of scraping the fences and then repainting them and then clearing up some of the ivy that has taken over much of the cemetery.
I recommend wearing old clothes you don’t mind getting dirty and if you have please bring gloves and paint scrapers if not I will supply them.
The time to be there is at 8am and we will finish both days at around 4pm and if not maybe later on or earlier, depending on how fast we complete it.
The organization is the Abandoned Cemeteries.
