In preparation for Remembrance Day, everyone in the community is invited to help with the fall cleanup at St. Andrew’s Cemetery.

St. Andrew’s Cemetery, also known as the Pioneer or Sandwick Cemetery, is the final resting place for many of the original settlers to the Comox Valley as well as many military war veterans. The cemetery is located behind St. Andrew’s Anglican Church at the corner of N. Island Hwy and Dingwall Road.

The clean-up is Saturday, Nov. 4 from 9 a.m. - noon. Remember to dress warmly, as this is a rain or shine event, and bring your gloves, rakes, wheel barrels, etc. Refreshments will be provided. Parking is available in the church lot and along McQuillan Road located at the top of the cemetery. Refreshments will be provided.
