Head stones were stood upright, trees cut and dragged, grass cut, dirt filled into open holes, trash collected, rakes used, etc. A immense "Thank You" goes out to all who contibuted in this event with close to 150 people working towards a great cause in preparation for the memorial dedication to Hariott Scott in May.
