Help resting place get ready for historic tour

Can you spare any elbow grease? A community cleanup is planned for Historic Fairview Cemetery late morning, early afternoon Saturday, May 7. (Journal File photo)

Volunteers are needed to help get Fairview Cemetery looking its best for a Memorial Day historic tour.

A community cleanup day is set for the cemetery at 700 Yale SE from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, May 7. People who wish to help with such tasks as getting rid of tumbleweeds and goatheads, and spreading mulch can put in any amount of time from one hour or longer within that time frame.

Snacks, water and trash bags will be provided and portable toilets will be available. Volunteers should bring their own tools and wear hard-soled shoes.

The historic tour of the cemetery will take place between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Memorial Day, May 30. Historians and other community members will be stationed at specific burial areas to provide information and answer questions about elected officials, soldiers, business people, educators, ethnic groups, religious leaders and others buried in Fairview. A $20 donation is requested for the tour. For more information about the cemetery, go to historicfairviewcemeteryabq.org.
