St. Andrew’s Church and Cemetery on Dingwall Road in Courtenay has been the final resting place for many early pioneers and families.
The graceful oaks and maples and charming early-spring flowers have been a canopy for all those graves.
This Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon, volunteers are welcome to a leaf-raking bee in the cemetery grounds, including an opportunity to clean up all the graves of our ancestors and families.
Rakes, bags and refreshments will be provided. Guides, Scouts and the Boys and Girls Club have also been invited.
For more information, phone Jessie Scott at the Church of St. John the Divine at 250-334-4331.
