Home Depot Volunteers Rehab Odd Fellows Cemetery
Updated: Friday, November 8 2013, 07:59 PM EST
AMELIA, Ohio (Adam Clements) -- An historic tri-state cemetery is getting a much needed makeover.
Odd Fellows Cemetery in Amelia hasn't seen this kind of care in at least a century. As Local 12's Adam Clements tells us, that changed Friday with a huge volunteer effort.
For close to 200 years it's been a cemetery. Friday close to a hundred volunteers, all employees of local Home Depot stores, rolled up their sleeves and got to work. They gave the historic grave site a much needed facelift.
The grounds are full of history, especially when it comes to US military veterans. Dozens of vets are buried at Odd Fellow's. Some going as far back as the Revolutionary War.
In keeping with the theme of honoring fallen veterans, volunteers are hard at work paving the center of the cemetery where a Vietnam era cannon will go once they are finished.
They are also giving the cemetery’s walkway a major upgrade. When all is said and done they will lay down more than 11,000 bricks.
The rehab won't end Friday. Plans are already in place to have another volunteer work day at the cemetery in the spring.
A third phase of the cleanup project involves building a veteran’s memorial wall. That will happen next spring.
