Eagle Scout Project for Brandon B. of Ambler Troop 3

Gravestones restoration at Rose Hill Cemetery in Ambler

When: 
  • Friday October 12th at 4:30 pm
  • Friday October 26th at 4:30 pm
Where: 
We will be meeting at Trinity Episcopal in Ambler [MAP] at 4 pm on the 12th and 26th. For those who can't make it to the church, the address for the site is 411 Susquehanna Rd, Ambler, PA 19002. It is the cemetery next to Rose Hill.

What to wear: Work Gloves, Boots/shoes

What to bring: Extra shovels would help if you can bring them. Shovels no longer needed, thanks! Just bring yourself!

Description: 
For most of the stones, we will be digging them up, filling some of the dirt back in, then tamping it down and placing the stone back in the hole. After that, we will fill the hole with the dirt and clean up any mess we made. If needed, we will be constructing forms for concrete, then we will pour the concrete in the forms. After they are done drying, we will be securing the stones atop them and cleaning up any mess. We will also be cutting obstructive vegetation from some of the gravestones and moving the debris. 
The gravestone work is done. We'll now be cleaning the stones and planting grass seed. Please help if you can!


This is Brandon B. You can forgive him for not looking as cool as Marc Z.
