Annual Memorial Day Ithaca City Cemetery Clean-up
Monday, May 28, 2018
9:00 A.M.-12:00 P.M. Clean-up
12:15 P.M.-1:00 P.M. Short tour of the Ithaca City Cemetery starting from the main gate on University Avenue.
Join our dedicated volunteers in multiple cleaning and restoration projects in the Ithaca City Cemetery. We’ll be beautifying the cemetery by picking up trash, clearing brush, and cleaning headstones. Through these projects, participants learn the sympathetic use and understanding of Ithaca’s oldest burial ground.
Meet at the shed just above the burial vaults.
Some helpful tips:
Wear closed-toe shoes. Bring bug spray, sunscreen, and bottled water. Work gloves are a good idea as well. All ages are welcome.
