Saturday Clean Up

Dear One Hour at a Time,

Hi, I’m Christine Maney, a member of the City-Owned Cemetery Advisory Committee.

There is a clean-up of historic Cove Hill (Lane’s Cove) Cemetery this coming Saturday, the 29th starting at 10am.

Val Gilman suggested I contact you to ask if you’d help us gather Saturday volunteers by posting the below flyer on your social media outlets.

I thank you in advance as we all work together to keep Gloucester clean and special.

Best Regards,

Christine
