Volunteers Needed !!!

The Society is looking for volunteers to help with straightening tomb stones at Brownsmill cemetery. Probably need a shovel, pick, digging iron or we may have extras. Our project for America 250 is to get the cemetery in better shape than it is today. A lot of Revolutionary soldiers are buried there. We really need help with this. The date is April 27th and we will meet at 9:00 at the cemetery. If you can help the Society out it would be greatly appreciated. Just email me at to let me know you are available.
