Lone Fir Cemetery Needs Your Help

Lone Fir Cemetery needs your help…

As spring approaches, bulbs are emerging from many of the muddy areas within Lone Fir. Metro needs the help from the community, leaves and branches have been sitting too long on the ground beneath the wonderful trees making it difficult for this season’s grass to emerge.  With your help, we can fix this! Our Site Stewardship Committee has gathered $150 for grass seed and supplies. That will be leveraged with a discount from Portland Nursery to increase the amount we can get. Metro will help to supply rakes and pick up the debris left alongside the road.  Once the weather improves, seeding can begin. Until then we can rake, rake and rake a little more. This should help keep the cemetery looking better than ever for Memorial Day, (when the cemetery is filled with visitors).  So come join us…let’s help Lone Fir put its best foot forward by coming to Friend’s first clean up of the year!
