North Carolina Branch Day of Service

PGMS NORTH CAROLINA BRANCH NEEDS VOLUNTEERS FOR OUTREACH PROJECT

For the fourth year in a row the PGMS North Carolina Branch is hosting an outreach project at the Odd Fellows Cemetery, a landmark in Winston-Salem, N.C. that has fallen in to disrepair. PGMS is taking a systematic approach to brush removal and prevention to bring the cemetery back to a manageable state. Click on the picture to the right learn more about the cemetery.

Here are the main details of the event:

When: February 18, 2017 (Rain date: TBD)

Time: The event will begin at 10 a.m. and run until 3 p.m. or  once the project is completed, whichever comes first. Lunch will be provided.

Where: The Cemetery is located at 2881 Shorefair Drive, Winston-Salem, NC 27105. Click here to see a map for directions. Parking is available in the large parking lot directly west of the Cemetery.

What to expect: Volunteers will be doing a variety of tasks including: picking up litter, removing and loading brush and wood, using wheel barrows, shoveling, raking, sowing grass, spreading straw and removing English Ivy from the base of trees. There will be work from light to heavy to accommodate most strength and skill levels. However, the terrain is uneven with tripping hazards, brush and debris. Those wishing to participate should take this into account. Jeans or heavy work pants, long sleeved shirt, work gloves and boots (if you have them) would be appropriate attire. As February weather in North Carolina can be quite fickle, volunteers are encouraged to dress accordingly. Due to the heavy equipment that will be in use and the nature of the site we ask that those under age 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
