Clean-up begins at Evergreen Cemetery

By Don Logana - bio | email

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Last week, we told you about help for a local cemetery left in shambles by it's absentee owner. See Evergreen Cemetery clean-up to happen next week.

This week, as promised, the work is underway at Evergreen Cemetery to restore it to a respectable resting ground. The Savannah Impact Program began their cleanup project to the sound of weed wackers and lawn mowers. They expect the project to take about a week and they're looking for some help from the community.

Evergreen Cemetery has been in poor condition for several years. Families with loved ones buried there have been complaining, so Savannah Impact took on the job.

An event to promote community involvement is being planned, and we will have dates and times coming soon. If you'd like to help, call Savannah Impact at 912.651.3865.

Cleaning begins Saturday, September 13 from 8am to 5pm. The public is invited to the cleaning event and there will be food and drinks.
