Cleanup Day, Save the Date !

Cleanup Day

Saturday June 22nd
10 am to dark
Stay the entire time, or just stay a few hours.  Bring the family !

We hope to accomplish (pick one thing you’d like to do):

Walden Cemetery
The descendants have been providing their own upkeep of Walden Cemetery.  Now, it appears that will be changing due to a death in their family.  Meanwhile, Walden’s appears neglected.  We know what that feels like, and do  not want to wish it on others.  So,  we clean Walden’s because it’s the right thing to do.  Help needed.

Fence painting of at least 1 enclosed plot
Supplies Needed (Association members will be bringing what they have, volunteers please bring what YOU have):

  • Paint Brushes, 2 inch and larger (Association has only a few)
  • Painter’s Tape or masking tape (Association has only a little bit)
  • Paper Towels (Association has some)
  • Sandpaper
  • Bedsheet/cardboard to sit on (Association has only a few)
  • Newspaper or something to keep the paint off the concrete (Association has only a few)
  • Rubber Gloves if you prefer (Association can provide surgical size small)
  • Leather Gloves
  • You might want to bring a face mask and goggles

Trash Detail
Supplies Needed (Association members will be bringing what they have, volunteers please bring what YOU have):

  • Contractor bags recommended, but others are just fine too
  • One of those “Grabber” things work really well and makes it easy on the back

Tombstone and Signage
(Tombstone assessment/clean if deemed necessary, under “supervision”; update the wooden sign; make a “POSTED” sign)
Supplies Needed (Association members will be bringing what they have, volunteers please bring what YOU have):

  • SOFT toothbrushes (Association will provide soft scrub brushes)
  • 3 gallons water (The cemetery has SOME but we don’t want to use it all up)
  • Bedsheet/cardboard to sit on (Association has only a few)
  • Rubber Gloves (Association can provide surgical size small)
  • Goggles if you prefer to bring your own
  • Association will provide soap and buckets, paint, adhesive, paint brushes
  • “POSTED” Sign provided by Association, also stick-on lettering and ruler

Lawn and Garden:
(Weed Whacking, Limb Removal, Grass Cutting, Lawn Mower TLC, Dusting the Fire Ants)
Supplies Needed (Association members will be bringing what they have, volunteers please bring what YOU have):

  • Fire Ant Killer (please?)
  • Round-Up “Brush Killer” (please?)
  • Leather Gloves
  • Rubber Gloves (Association can provide surgical size small)
  • You might want to bring a face mask and goggles
  • Gasoline if needed for equipment that you bring
  • We will provide mowers; if you have gas lawn equipment  of any kind please bring it.  Saws and heavy duty pruners are good as well.  There is no electricity.  Suzanne will bring her pole pruner.

We ask that volunteers bring supplies/as many supplies as you can, for the duty that you want to perform.  Also wear long pants, long sleeves, and closed-toe shoes.

It would be SUPER APPRECIATED if someone would volunteer to be on the “Food and Drink” Committee 🙂 and surprise us with some lunchtime goodies.

See you then !

– Suzanne
