For my project, I will be fixing up Union Cemetery in Palatine that is managed by my church, Immanuel Lutheran, and St. Paul United Church of Christ, both in Palatine. Specifically, the project involves raising and realigning small gravestones. Attached is a flyer that provides more details about my project.
The project dates are:
1.) Saturday May 21st – 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM
2.) Sunday May 22nd – 9:00AM – 5:00PM
Since Robert’s Eagle Ceremony is at 4:00 PM on Saturday, I am hoping many of you will be able to come out at the start and stay until early afternoon if possible. On Sunday the 22nd, I hope to see you all as well. Thanks in advance for volunteering! More Info
