More than 70 participants in the 19th Judicial District Courthouse Adult Drug Court were at work Saturday restoring gravesites in Sweet Olive Cemetery on North Street.

The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office spent the past two weeks cleaning out debris and weeds at the neglected cemetery so participants could clean the graves, according to a news release.

Sheriff Sid Gautreaux and W.T. Winfield, president of the Sweet Olive Cemetery Association, joined the clean-up crews.
