Volunteers needed for cemetery cleanup

All are invited to participate in the 3rd annual National Day of Service at the Bayview Cemetery.

Attendees will work to clean the weathered headstones and grave markers at the cemetery.

Bring a bucket with brushes, spray bottles filled with water, baby oil and rags. The cemetery has more than 1,800 graves, so many volunteers are needed. Experienced workers will demonstrate how to clean the headstones and grave markers.

The National Day of Service project is planned for 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Sept. 14 at the Bayview Cemetery, 5794 South Bayview Rd.

The event is coordinated by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, South Whidbey Island Ward.
