New Mount Ida Cemetery,Troy, Looking for Volunteers

A friend, Alysia, passed this note on to me. The group that is restoring the New Mount Ida Cemetery on Pinewoods Avenue in Troy is looking for help/volunteers with gravestone restoration in July. Details are below:

We are looking for volunteers again for our annual stone repair workshop in the New Mount Ida Cemetery, on Pinewoods Avenue in Troy. It will be held Saturday, July 8th and Sunday, July 9th from 8am-5pm. Joe Ferrannini will be here again for our annual event, and we are looking for help with cleaning stones with soft brushes. Joe will be doing the actual repair work on the markers. Its always very rewarding and always a great time to hang out with other volunteers. Plus its so great to see the stones once they are all repaired. Please feel free to pass this along to anyone that you know of that may be interested!
