Volunteer clean up project set for Forest Hill Cemetery

A community service clean up project will take place May 8 at Forest Hill Cemetery in Shelbyville.


Organized by Carrie Ridgeway, the clean up project offers community service hours to individuals and groups.


The event runs from 8:30 a.m. to noon at the cemetery, 704 Morris Avenue.


The goal is to spruce up the cemetery after the winter months and prepare it for the Memorial Day holiday when many people visit.


Volunteers should bring weed eaters and leaf blowers if possible.


Collecting fallen sticks and tree branches and sweeping headstones also is needed.


There will be an official on site to sign off on community service hours.


If weather does not cooperate, the event will take place on May 15.
