Plaquemine Selectman Jimmie Randle is asking the public to donate time and supplies for a daylong cleanup at the Homestead, Magnolia, Laboring Sisters and Roscoe Cemeteries on Capt. T.T. Harris Avenue in Plaquemine on Oct. 3.
The cleanup is in honor of Professor Wendell O. Williams, a community-spirited volunteer who spent countless hours maintaining the cemeteries.
Volunteers are asked to bring supplies and meet up at Homestead Cemetery at 8 a.m. Supplies needed include paint, brushes, rollers, scrappers, rags, etc.
“We are urging everyone to come out and help us clean up our cemeteries,” Randle said in a news release. “Church, civic, Scout, school groups and individuals are needed. These are the gravesites of our ancestors, and we should take care of them.”
For information, contact Randle at (225) 776-4112.
