Elm Springs Cemetery clean stones

I am officially wore out. We had 25 people show up to clean stones in the Elm Springs Cemetery. We had people there representing the Confederacy, the Union, one local tv station and several interested people. We hit a home run. I am very very proud of those men from the Fontaine R Earle camp who were able to come out and participate in this project as we honored these men. I will post pix, more details etc, after a small nap. I am so so proud of all that participated.
