What else you should know

There is plenty of parking near the cemetery and inside it near the historic section. Please park outside the cemetery on Broadway, on the right side of the road to avoid crossing a busy street.

Snacks
I will provide bottled water and a light snack. Please let me know if you have any allergies or dietary requirements.
Equipment
I will provide all brushes, cleaning supplies, knowledge, and equipment. You will provide the muscle.

What to bring

Bottled Water - There is non-potable water in the cemetery for cleaning, but I wouldn't drink it.
Head Covering to keep your hair clean (like a bandanna or hat)

Where you'll be

We will be on the grounds of an active 100 acre historical cemetery that has been in use since the 1890's. It has beautiful old growth trees, famous graves, old paths, and members of the Spanish American war. We will always conduct ourselves with decorum and respect while we have fun learning how to clean and restore markers, learn about death culture, local history and walk through the cemetery.
