We are hosting a clean-up at the historic CU003 cemetery. The cemetery is at the intersection of England Street and Dexter Street on Rte. 123 in Cumberland. The date is Saturday, April 24th from 9 to 12. Rain date is Sunday, April 25th.
The cleanup is part of the 2021 RI Statewide Historical Cemetery Restoration and Awareness event, an 8 week celebration that runs from April 1st – May 31. Volunteers will rake leaves, pickup trash, cut brush, etc. In addition, we will provide gloves, bags and some tools. You can also bring your own tools as well. Parking is available on England Street, Citizen Street, E. Barrows Street and on the left side of Galinda’s Automotive Sales Annex. Do not park along Curran Road due to heavy truck traffic.
We will follow COVID safety protocols. Registration for the event is required. To register or for more information contact Judy at Treelady@cox.net. A list of all the statewide historic cemetery events can be found at: https://www.facebook.com/RIHistoricCemeteries.
