31 May Youth group spruces up Old Dutch Burying Ground in advance of Memorial Day
Posted at 16:52h in General News, Old Dutch, Youth
An annual church event to prepare for Memorial Day: Pastor Jeff invited the youth group members to replace old flags for veterans tombstones at the Old Dutch Church Burial Ground.
This year he also gave the youth group another task: to decorate the Amanda Foster Gravesite. Foundation stones were revealed during the lockdown, after removing about a foot of dirt. The teens of the group pulled out weeds and transplanted several flower pots around the gravesite. It was fabulous to learn about history and prepare for Memorial Day with teens!
Thanks to Pastor Jeff and Mr. John. Many thanks to Henri, Yariel, Peregrin, Anu, Stella, little Sebastian, and Mr. Doug for your hard work.
