Ceme­tery Work Day In The Ferry

The Oakdale Leader - - NEWS -

Vol­un­teers are be­ing sought to help ‘Jazz Up’ the ceme­tery in Knights Ferry.

A work day has been sched­uled for Satur­day, Oct. 7 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and all vol­un­teers are wel­come and ap­pre­ci­ated. The clean-up is be­ing spon­sored by the Knights Ferry Ceme­tery Board, Knights Ferry Ma­sonic Lodge, the Odd Fel­lows Hall, the sev­enth and eighth grades at Knights Ferry school, Ohe Sand and Gravel, Modesto Cor­ner­stone Mon­u­ment and Patty Mu­ni­ain.

Bring your dé­cor, flow­ers, bark, rock, and your gar­den­ing tools to help with the clean-up ef­fort.

Or­ga­niz­ers said the goal is not to change the his­toric ceme­tery but to freshen up and honor the com­mu­nity’s loved ones of yes­ter­year. Vol­un­teers will en­joy the sounds of a key­boardist and sax­o­phone plyer per­form­ing jazz while clean-up is done.

There will also be a hot dog lunch served from noon to 1 p.m. in the com­mu­nity cen­ter; potluck sal­ads and desserts are wel­come.

For in­for­ma­tion about par­tic­i­pat­ing, con­tact Von­nie Mu­ni­ain at 8408058 and to make mon­e­tary do­na­tions, con­tact Carol Davis, 881-3217.
