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.
