Fall Cleanup Volunteers

Volunteers are needed to help rake leaves at the historic cemetery grounds of St. Paul's Church in anticipation of its Veterans Day Commemoration. Soldiers from every war in American history—from colonial times through the Korean War—are buried at St. Paul's, which is one of the oldest continuously used burial yards in the country. Veterans Day commemorations, which include guided tours and placing of wreaths, draw large crowds and volunteers will help keep the area tidy!
