3/10/2017, 8:20 p.m.
Fresh from winning state funding to support two historic African-American cemeteries, Delegate Delores L. McQuinn will lead a cleanup of the Evergreen and East End cemeteries this weekend.
She is seeking 500 volunteers to assist with removing vines, overgrown grass, trees and weeds from the gravesites from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, March 11.
A light lunch will be provided to participants.
Delegates Jeff M. Bourne of Richmond and Lamont Bagby of Henrico plan to join Delegate McQuinn at the site, along with members of the Maggie L. Walker High School Class of 1967, Friends of East End Cemetery and the Baptist Ministers’ Conference of Richmond and Vicinity.
The cemeteries are located along Stony Run Parkway in Eastern Henrico County and can be reached from either Nine Mile Road or East Richmond Road.
