Hillsboro Cemetery of Prairie Township - September 11, 2007
This year as one of the United Fund's Day of Caring projects, the Hillsboro cemetery in Prairie Township was chosen for our annual volunteer clean up effort.
After meeting at the Moose Lodge early Tuesday morning for breakfast, then picking up our special "Day-of-Caring" t-shirts and supplies, including lunch and drinks for the day, everyone left for their assigned place of work for the day.
The Henry County Cemetery Commission, Hillsboro cemetery trustee, Gene Clark, along with about two-dozen other volunteers headed out to the Hillsboro cemetery to do major clean up.
Many tombstones were cleaned, repaired and reset. Trees were trimmed and all trash and other debris were picked up and piled into a pile to be burned later.
By 3:00 p.m. the cemetery was looking great and everyone was ready to call it a day and return to the Moose Lodge for pizza, drinks and the final wrap up of today's events.
We would like to thank all the volunteers; Jeff Wasner, Jason Noble, Ashlie Wilkinson, Chris Ingram, Jed LeDue, Sherry Correl, Amber Burton, Debbie Caster, Tara Carter, Amy Adams, David Malone, Cindy Chesser, Donna Tauber, Ken and Ann Holmes, Angela Tielking, Bud Bush, Gene Clark, Elizabeth and Tracy Sharp and any other volunteer that showed up that day.
And a special thanks to cemetery commission member Ken Holmes and Hillsboro cemetery trustee Gene Clark for getting everything set up and ready for the clean-up project.
It was great and much appreciated job from everyone. THANKS!
