Our first group service project of the Rotary year took place at Lee Mission Cemetery, located at 2104 D St. NE., on Saturday, September 5th. Located in the east Salem area, it is Salem’s oldest cemetery, and is in need of a little gardening TLC. This cemetery is closely tied to Oregon history, and is a nonprofit maintained only through donations and plot sales. Club members brought garden tools such as rakes, shovels, and trimmers, and did a great job of providing a facelift for a large planting area near the cemetery entrance. This was a great opportunity to beautify this historic cemetery and get together in person while practicing social distancing.
