As part of our efforts to do community projects as the NOSHA Social Aid & Pleasure Club, we will help Save Our Cemetery once again!
They really need volunteers to do vegetation removal and heavy cleanup in Odd Fellows Rest Cemetery, which is located in New Orleans at the end of the Canal streetcar line. It will be a morning of cutting back palm trees, removing the horrid ferns from tombs, and cleaning up broken marble fragments.
You should bring a pair of gardening style work gloves, bottled water and wear comfortable clothing, sturdy shoes, sunscreen and a hat. There is a coffee shop next door that opens at 7am, if you want to get there earlier and parking should be easily available out front.
Our group leaders are Joyce Kisner Thomas and Dave Thomas, so please contact them directly if you have any specific questions about the activities. Her email is mertyw at gmail.com
