We will be back at Elmerton Cemetery in Hampton on October 1st from 9am to noon to help restore the grounds to a respectful state. Black education pioneer Mary Peake rests at Elmerton along with many Africans who were emancipated during our Civil War. The Barrette-Peake Heritage Foundation maintains the cemetery and relies on volunteers like us. This project includes trash pickup and lawn maintenance.
Each volunteer is required to complete a liability waiver holding the Barrett Peake Heritage Foundation harmless. Waivers will be available at the start of each event for those who have not previously volunteered.
(Volunteer service letter is available upon request)
