2014 Cemetery Sweep-out Day Sign In or Register to add photos

In preparation for the observance of Memorial Day and the 2014 mowing season, your cemetery hosted its 2nd annual "Cemetery Sweep-out Day" on April 26. Sponsored once again by the Crown City Rollerz, the event brought 51 members of the community (including members of both cemetery boards) into the cemetery for a morning of raking, trash removal, project-specific excavating, and paint scraping. Also in evidence this year were staff and clients from the JM Murray Center, who focused on planting five spruce trees donated to the cemetery by SUNY Professor and Hermit Hill Tree Farm proprietor, Dr. Charles Yaple, in honor of Earth Day (which was celebrated just days earlier on April 22). The City of Cortland also helped out by doing a pre- and post-event visit for the spring's build-up of green waste. "Between the Rollerz, the great folks from the Murray Center, the city, and an eclectic mix of dedicated individuals -- we really got a great start on what will be an exciting year at the CRC," said Board of Trustees President, John Hoeschele. (A special photo-credit shout out to CRC Foundation Board Member and photo-bug, Jim Clark... He shot / supplied most of these great images!)
