It’s that time of year again.
Time to fight back mother nature at our pioneer cemetery. St. Andrew’s is a beautiful, serene resting place of many of our earliest settlers.
The cemetery is the home to woodland meadows and many protected Gary oaks. Because of this natural setting, it is important to keep weeds and invasive plants at bay to prevent the graves from being overgrown and hidden.
We invite everyone in the community, especially the families and descendants of pioneers and military veterans, to come help with the annual spring cleanup at St. Andrew’s cemetery on Saturday, April 23 from 9 a.m. to noon. Refreshments will be provided. The cemetery is located behind St. Andrew’s Angican Church at the corner of North Island Highway and Dingwall Road. Bring work gloves, a rake, water and a hat, and wear some sunscreen and work clothes.
