In preparation for Memorial Day, community members are invited to join us as we honor Veterans and past community members by cleaning up Rosehill Cemetery. Meet at the greenhouse at Rosehill Cemetery, 2355 Rollandet at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 4.
Volunteers will help to remove old brush, garbage, and generally prepare the cemetery for the upcoming Memorial holiday. This should take approximately two hours. Please bring work gloves, rakes and some water to stay hydrated. The Parks and Recreation Department will provide garbage bags, small snacks and drinks.
