Volunteer Opportunity August 21st and 28th

August 13, 2016 – 4:44 pm

You are invited to join the Friends of Historic Riverside Cemetery in a painting project at Riverside!  

We’ll be prepping and painting the planter just north of the office on the mornings of August 21st and 28th, from 8:00 AM – 12:00 PM.

Water, snacks, sunblock and painting supplies will be provided.  Bring gloves, a hat, and a small stool or pad for your knees as this planter is low to the ground and much of the work will be kneeling or seated.

If you are interested in attending please RSVP to friends@friendsofriversidecemetery.com so we can be sure to have enough supplies.  Any questions you may have may be directed to the above email.

We look forward to seeing you there and to another successful painting project!
