NORTH ADAMS, MASS. — The Fall Day of Service, coordinated by the city, Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts and the Chamber of Commerce, will take place on Saturday, Oct. 26, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Hillside Cemetery on Route 2.
For more than 20 years, MCLA and the local community have come together to clean up and improve the community. The scope and type of projects have evolved over the years, and the number of people participating has increased significantly over the years as come out for the day to make North Adams a better place to live.
This year, the focus will continue on the Hillside Cemetery Restoration Project.
Roger Eurbin, a local resident who has spearheaded the restoration
, said Saturday's work will focus on getting the Veterans Circle cleaned for Veterans Day ceremonies on Nov. 11.
"If you want to help, bring a rake and gloves and we'll put you to work," said Eurbin at Tuesday's City Council meeting.
The Hillside Cemetery Restoration Project is a large and long-term effort. With the ongoing work of Eurbin, with the support of Mayor Richard Alcombright and the city, this project will continue. Last year, MCLA students and local volunteers cleared brush and cataloged stones. This year, the cataloging will continue, along with some basic stone cleaning and maintenance.
The community is invited to join in this effort. Work will begin at 10 a.m. and continue until 2 p.m. Volunteers should free to stop by for whatever time they may have to help, or to chat with Eurbin about the project.
