Help cleanup historic cemeteries in RI

A state-wide cleanup of historical cemeteries is scheduled for Saturday, April 19.

The event is sponsored by the RI Advisory Commission on Historical Cemeteries, chaired by Evelyn Wheeler of Narragansett, who asks that anyone wishing to clean up a historical cemetery in their neighborhood, contact her with the cemetery number or description of where it is. She can be reached at 789-3503 or by e mail at eviewhee@verizon.net.

Historical Cemetery clean up will not be limited to the Earth Day weekend, it can be done anytime. For those who can't make the April 19 date, they can call to sign up for another date. The rain date for the event is April 26.
