Yardley Public Burial Grounds Community Service clean up day has been rescheduled from April 3 to April 22. There is no rain date . Please join us anytime between 9 AM and 2 PM for any amount of time you wish to contribute. The Martha Washington Garden Club and our community are thrilled to partner with Comcast corporation on April 22, 2017. Approximately 30 Comcast volunteers will help us with the cleanup at the Historic Cemetery in Yardley Main St ( across from Wells Fargo ...Bank near the train station ) . Comcast's team will enable us to complete many of the projects we have only been able to have on a 'wish list ' such as mulching the path, sprucing up the seating area and adding decorative plants. Everyone in the community is welcome to join us
I hope we will see many community and garden club members at the event to show our support and express our thanks to Comcast while we provide a much needed community service. Coffee and donuts will be served in the AM, bring water and any garden tools you may have handy such as a rake or pruning sheers.
This is also a perfect opportunity for your children, grandchildren or neighbors who are looking for Community Service hours to pitch in to beautify their community. Letters verifying hours will be available the day of the event.
Let's all support our community in association with the Comcast Cares Day of Service!
